Washing Line Claddagh, Galway 1930's
You may not be aware but I collect images of washing lines (they can't touch you for it) and so I was delighted to discover this one by way of the fantastic irisharchealogy website. And also to discover the inspirational work of American photographer Branson DeCou who sadly died in 1941 aged 49. More of his Irish photos can be found here. They were taken in black and white and then coloured, some are a little over the top colour wise (!) but they are amazing images. He travelled the world taking photos and all can be accessed in a digital archive, aren't we lucky?
I am pleased folk are liking my current header pic of an Irish cottage by the sea, I found it on Facebook and must apologise for not knowing and naming the source but I just had to copy it as it epitomises my dream home!
I have been next door posting pics of late......... do call by. Cat lovers are especially welcome...
And have a great weekend.
