Answer: When it’s Myrtleville, of course. For some reason several old pictures found online refer to Church Bay.
William Lawrence in his photographic tours of Ireland took pictures pre-1905. Again, some strangely marked as Church Bay.
Other William Lawrence pictures are then marked correctly.
Annagh House – the 1913 postal directory says Mr. Charles E.L. Olden was the resident. Correctly shown as Myrtleville.
We’ve also got one from the 1930’s labelled as Fennell’s Bay!
Nice to see swimmers in several of the pictures 🙂
Many of the W Lawrence collection are loosley located – lots of the coastal shots around the harbour are tagged “Queenstown” – and are on the National Library of Ireland’s website. Some cool pix above too!
Thanks, Ian. That’s useful to know.
