Irish Rebellion Postcard

Recommended Posts

Roy Evans

I recently picked up this postcard;

"Irish Rebellion May 1916 Guarding one of the Dublin Streets"

The sign on the left reads 'Madden Outfitters'

Can anyone identify the Street? ;)

Talbot Street.

For the best ever collection of Irish Rising photographs buy the just published book called "The Irish Times book of the Irish Rising" by Shane hegarty and Fintan O'Toole, published by Gill & McMillan.

website for Gill and macmillan is:

www.gillmacmillan.ie

isbn 13: 978 07171 4191 3

isbn 10: 07171 4191 8

Unfortunately it is not possible to identify the regt of the soldiers. Well anyway I cant. I will try and blow the picture up a bit later on this weekend. But Fairly confident that it is not the Sherwood Foresters.

Thanks for all your replies.

I've had a go at enlarging the postcard myself but cant make out the cap badges either, but then I'm no expert.

John - Didn't think so! Just hoping.

(P.S. I must remember to post that book back to you. I read it. It's a bit....tedious isn't it!? :P )

Roy - thanks for the efforts to enlarge and decipher the cap badges.

Just wondering what the defensive qualities of a sofa or an armchair are. Bet the soldiers felt really protected behind a chase lounge.

Kevin - your comments about the defensive properties of upholstered furniture has got me thinking.

Two photo's. Different angles. Taken from in front of the barricade, i.e. in the Easter Rising's version of 'no man's land'....

Presumably staged photo's?
