Stella Maris Hotel, Kilkee, Co. Clare, 1990

Definitely some tourists (see the car regn. nos.) enjoying beautiful sunshine outside the Stella Maris Hotel in Clare, on a Bank Holiday Monday in 1990.

 

Taken by photographer, John O'Brien...

 

You can compare this view of Kilkee 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.

Date: Monday, 6 August 1990 at 17:15 (weather conditions - sunny)
