Eamon de Valera, M.P. for East Clare at the time this portrait was taken at A.H. Poole Photographic Studio in Waterford. Wonder if he was in Waterford to raise support, as there must have been a political vacuum since John Redmond of the Irish Parliamentary Party had died on 6 March 1918...


Initially thought that de Valera was wearing a lorgnette, but most commenters below have plumped for Pince-nez...
