“A couple watching the world go by from their flat on York Street, Dublin,” 1954, via National Library of Ireland (cropped slightly by me.)
The photo was taken by Elinor O’ Brien Wiltshire or her husband Reginald Wiltshire, owners of The Green Studios Ltd., Dublin.
Christmas tree wagon of William Power & Sons, merchants of seeds and trees. Photo taken at Waterford, Ireland, courthouse on December 16, 1929, via National Library of Ireland Commons on flickr.
There’s another good photo of this little girl (possibly a Power) and another loaded company wagon here.
Brought down at last
From the cold sighing mountain
Where I and the others
Had been fed, looked after, kept still,
Meant, I knew — of course I knew —
That it would only be a matter of weeks,
That there was nothing more to do. . . .
— James Merrill, from “Christmas Tree“
