Yep, although that picture is from 1906, I have seen a list of names of the entire platform party from the opening in 1908, I have not scanned that article yet, as its not complete and I want to have it all gathered together before I start posting it. :xmascheesygrin:

Great work, all in getting this info and photo. One cannot read the article and not come away with a sense of how strongly those earlier leaders believed in Warrenpoint and its future. The reasons given for the need to have the Baths and its pool are valid today just as then. These leaders did more than just talk. How refreshing that would be today!
