January 6, 1908

Very unusual photograph in our Poole Collection. While not taken on 6 January, the copy was executed by Poole on this day in 1908, so feel justified in using it for our Pic of the Day. The copy was ordered by a Mr J. Farrell of Ballyknock, New Ross, Co. Wexford.


We're presuming that it's relatives of the Farrell family who had emigrated to America...


As always with unknown locations, would dearly love to know where this photo was taken, but especially so that we could make landfall on the U.S. with our NLI Flickr Commons map!
