TO BRIDGE OR NOT TO BRIDGE

There is proposal to build a bridge here, across the Newry River, at Narrow Water between Warrenpoint and Newry. It would connect Omeath, Co Louth with Co Down. There was a passenger ferry here in the dim distant past. Photo on 11 October 2006.

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!
