The Strand, Tramore, County Waterford, Ireland – About 1900

scan0238This postcard image is from The Lawrence Collection.  William Lawrence was a well known Irish photographer who had a portrait studio in O’Connell Street, Dublin in the late 1800’s, and he was also responsible for sending photographers around Ireland, collecting images of people, places and things.  Many of his glass plates of portraits were destroyed in a fire, but the plates for photos taken around the country survived in another location, and they are now housed in the National Irish Archives in Dublin.
