Pig Fair, Edenderry – Amsterdam Picture

Pig Fair, Edenderry

How could none of you tell me that we’d been sorely neglecting Co. Offaly? So here’s the pig fair at Edenderry, Co. Offaly or (King’s County, as was).

Difficult to make out the time from the clock, but the previous shot in this sequence was taken at 10:02, so I think by squinting, it looks as if this photo was taken at 10:05(ish).

Some of the shop names are clearer in the companion shot, so will add notes on each asap…

Date: 1910?
