Girl on a Tricycle, et al, Ireland, 1900

This highly unusual group of pictures were all taken in Ireland by medical student J.J. Clarke between 1890 and 1910. Clarke came to Dublin from Castleblaney in 1897. His images have a spontaneity and “snapshot” quality which is very rare in photographs of this time.
