Portrait of two young girls reading
A charming portrait from the Clonbrock Collection to follow Col. R. Burke which was explored yesterday! The Clonbrocks were true amateurs with a great love of photography and they developed great skill in the art. This is a really lovely image that any photographer might be proud of!
There is a firm (and likely) suggestion that the two well turned-out girls are Edith Dillon (1878-1964) and Ethel Dillon (1880-1978). Both of whom we've "watched grow up", and almost feel like part of the NLI family at this stage....
