ALL SMILES FOR THE CAMERA 1153
All smiles for the camera and perched everywhere on the tractor this photograph
was taken at Crumlin.
At the front with his arm around his dad is William Courtney, behind him
is his brother Roy second from the right with the dog on his knee.
Also there is Frank Courtney and Ronnie from Riverside. The year is unknown.
ANTRIM ROAD 367
This is the Antrim Road in Crumlin caught on camera back in 1911. It is
very unusual to see a road completely clear of cars - but in the foreground
you can certainly see evidence that horses had travelled that way! To the
right you can see a line of immaculately trimmed thatched cottages and at
the top of the street you may be able to just make out a pub. This image
was actually used on postcards in the early part of the 20th century and
indeed this photo was taken from a postcard sent on June 6, 1912. The recipient
was a Master J.Walker, who lived in Fintona. The message read:
'Come along for a ride on the hobby horses, Jack. Hurry back or you will
miss all the fun. Did you ever see this view before? Best wishes, Ena'.
