Yes, an excellent photograph.
If you click to enlarge it would appear that the building (Balmoral Hotel) is not there. The entrance to Slieve Foy Place seems a lot wider than it is at present.
I don't think the gable ended building is the Balmoral but rather 12 Seaview.
12 Seaview was previously owned by Miss Loughran and operated as a Guest house ( known as Seaview Guest House) until the early 1960's.

When did house numbering take place.

Looking forward to hear comments.

The building we know as the Balmoral was not there even after the baths were built (I have another old photo on here showing a high tide taken from the baths and its not there) so yes that would be no 12

Also, just to make sure you all know the early 1901 census numbered the houses on seaview from 1 upwards getting higher as you went towards the Balmoral so remember that if checking census records
