Egyptian Arch, Newry, before bypass flyover built.jpg
Taken by photographer, Liam Murtagh, who was absolutely excellent and presumably waited patiently until he could capture a vehicle passing under the arch at just the same point as the cart in the original Lawrence photograph.

You can compare this view of the Egyptian Arch with its <a href='http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland/7499763628' target='_blank'>companion photo</a> taken approximately 85 years earlier as part of the Lawrence Photographic Project 1990/1991, where one thousand photographs from the Lawrence Collection in the National Library of Ireland were replicated a hundred years later by a team of volunteer photographers, thereby creating a record of the changing face of the selected locations all over Ireland.

Egyptian Arch, Newry, circa 1905 - Flickr - 7499763628.jpg
This photo was taken probably by Robert French, chief photographer of William Lawrence Photographic Studios of Dublin. There are fragmentary posters under the arch.

From what I can make out, the furthest one has CATT... perhaps a Cattle Mart? But I can definitely make out May, and if it wasn't for a pesky outcrop of rock, we might actually have a year! Unforunately can't make sense of the other poster, as it has folded back on itself, and the one beneath it is not clear either! ☹

There are 3 children under the arch. Ethereal boy at extreme right moved twice, so we've two ghosty boys for him... Oh, and we have telegraph wires if that's a help!
