These are great photos Navanman but you need to scan them one by one. Tell me what scanner you have and I'll help you sort it.

I have a HP CM2320 Multifunction Device. If I scan in one at a time how do I upload them so that there are a few of them on the one posting? I have seen it done a few times on the site.

I'll get back to you when I check out your scanner settings. You need to upload photos one by one on imageshack but you also need to scan them individuallly first.

Sorry about all these questions. So I scan them in dividually into a folder. How do I then get more than one image from there to imageshack to the site at the same posting? Is there a limit to the space?

Navanman,

Great shots. But, typical woman I am going to need so much more...
Do you have any history or dates for any of the photos. Some of the places I know but most I don't ..will need details??
Where were those "refreshment" tin sheds. I had heard about that bridge across the road from the Pavillion but never saw a picture,WOW. I love the funeral directors ad Funeral Requisites on the shortest notice :D

Yes scan them one by one and save them to a folder. Then upload them one by one to imageshack and paste the links in the message.

Here's the manual I was checking out. http://bizsupport1.austin.hp.com/bc/doc ... 458894.pdf

The only thing it doesn't say, and important, is that just before you click on scan you should have an option to select a box around the photo so you don't have all that excess background space around it.
Hope any of this makes sense.

Have been at this for nearly 3 hours trying to load this photo.

Some of your fathers may be in this.

My father (who was born in 1910 and went to school in St. John the Baptist Blackrock) is the one with the sticky out ears.

The 3rd. from the right middle row. He is probably 10 in this photo so it was taken around 1920.

We found 2 books given to him for attendance in school (1 in 1923 - The Vicar of Wakefield and another in 1924 Cupid of Companion) The second book is signed by Very Rev. Cannon Waters PP.

Where was/is the school?

It appears that there were 2 schools - one on Sweetmans Ave. and one beside where the current church is.

Anybody know where those school rolls would have went?

Was it the school on Sweetmans Ave.?

Anybody know the identity of these people?

This is a photo of my parents wedding and we are trying to identify some people.

The photo was taken in 1952 at the rear of St. Michaels.

Unfortunately most of the people in the photo have since passed on.

Would anybody know the identity of

the woman 2nd from left in 2nd row
Woman on very left hand side at rear (behind woman above)
Man at very right hand side at rear
2 women over brides (my mother) left hand shoulder
Young girl at front - we suspect she is from Oliver Plunkett Ave. in Monkstown farm

Navanman,

WOW. What great pictures. I hope someone can spot their father in the Blackrock picture.By that time my father's family had moved to DunLaoghaire. The faces all look so familiar.

St John the Baptist School was where those two red bricked buildings are , where the three thin figures holding up the black rock representing Blackrock are in the middle of the road.
Explaining this badly ...There are the steps of the Catholic church, the car park then the two red bricked buildings (the school).

Love your parents wedding photo again hope you have luck identifying the paople.

Navanman,

You got me thinking about the two schools. I got into the OSI maps and on the earliest one there is a school on Sweetman's Avenue that must be where the Hospice is now and then the Nat School where I remember St John The Baptist School on Temple Road.

When was the school knocked down?

Wonder what happens to the school rolls?

Navanman

I should know that but I am not sure. I'd say about the 1980's when they developed Barclay Court in the Vincentians land and put in the by passes and built those red bricked buildings.
I wonder if the Parish Priest would know where the school rolls are or the Department of Education.

I'm also thinking about the location of the National School. From the very early maps the school looks almost in front of the church though in the 50's I remember it a bit up Temple Road in its own grounds a Granite buidling ,single storied pitched roof, with about four or six class rooms. There was a concrete yard around it. It could be that the older school your father went to was replace.
I thought Macken the builder who was on Patrick's Street built the school.Will ask around though there are very few rockers around.

Knew I remembered something about Mackens. Just got into the Dictionary of Irish Architects and the school was built in 1926.
link http://www.dia.ie/works/view/32443/buil ... HE+BAPTIST
There is a reference at the end of that and maybe the Irish Architects archives have a photo...long shot ..I have never contacted them but who knows.

Really appreciate you coming back.

We have 2 books that were presented to him in the school before 1926. So there must have been a school there before they built the new one in 1926.

The Department of Education should be able to tell you where the roll books are. You could also ask the National Archive in Bishop Street or the National Library.

Sinead,
Are they generally available to the public or are they confidential?
