And that's it, the record of their trip here in 1899. A final number of prints in the album showed images from Ayr in Scotland.
I wonder is the gentleman in the final image our photographer as he appears in a couple of the Scottish photographs as well. ~x(

Richiemac - thoroughly enjoyed looking
at these.
To think that someone took the time
to meticulously name all these photos
of their trips, and someone could
just "dump" them. ;--)

Richiemac

These are just fantastic. The one of Narrow Water is particularly fine, with the train just approaching the castle in the background. This photograph seems very similar (but not identical) to postcards on the forum taken from the same location, even with ladies leaning against the beached ferryboats to the right of the photograph, Also in the "On the Canal" one with the little White House on the right, if you zoom in behind the house you can see an old building which is significantly older. A clue to its location is what looks like a railway bridge behind the house on the right.

Thanks again.
Jim

If there was a prize for 'Post of the year' in the 'Series' category it would be a close call between dukestreet's regular newspaper reports and this series of photos from Ritchiemac.....both of which I have enjoyed so much !

A wonderful contribution Richard and I would say these photos are of great importance on so many levels. We have enjoyed them as 'point people but I'm sure the museums in Carlingford and Newry would also love to have them......and more than likely the Ulster Museum in Belfast too ! Imagine, they were heading to the dump !!!

Yes these are so important that I have "stuck" them to the top of this section. The order may change randomly but they will stay at the top :D
