The Tholsel, Kilkenny

Very definitely the earliest sighting of a Post No Bills sign in our photos, way earlier than this Galway one! Although by the looks of the shopfront visible through the arches, nobody's taken a blind bit of notice...


Lovely clear row of businesses on the right that may help with dating. (L. to r.: Edmond Molloy, Murphy, Quinn, Lumsden...)


Date: 1860-1883
