From the National Library Of Ireland

At first glance, this looked like many of our other Main Street photos, but what did Robert French (almost certainly) capture for us but a Barrel Piano on Main Street, Bandon in Co. Cork! At least I think that’s what it is in the bottom right corner? Oh, and there’re also a few women in those amazing hooded cloaks! And how tasty does this bread sound – “Triticumina” Bread as supplied to Her Majesty the Queen…

Photographer: Almost certainly Robert French ofLawrence Photographic Studios, Dublin

Date: Circa 1900?

Since it’s Bandon, I’d say it’s most likely about 40 years in the future.
