Ballyhooly, Co. Cork, 1991

This one is for those of you who've been complaining over the past few weeks about the modern photos being crowded or cluttered by cars - you know who you are, not looking at anyone in particular - well, maybe just a little! :)

 

Taken by photographer, Patrick Connolly...

 

You can compare this view of Ballyhooly with its companion photo taken approximately 100 years earlier as part of the Lawrence Photographic Project 1990/1991, where one thousand photographs from the Lawrence Collection in the National Library of Ireland were replicated a hundred years later by a team of volunteer photographers, thereby creating a record of the changing face of the selected locations all over Ireland.

 

For further information on the Lawrence Photographic Project, read all about it on our NLI Blog.

 

Date: Wednesday, 15 May 1991 at 13:15 (weather conditions - dull / cloudy)
