Well I was intrigued myself as to what I have, unfortunately, the massive repository I have, is uncatalogued. So I started wading through one folder with 738 files! And got 27 decent ones, including GWR, E2E!
So rather than clog the forum, I have deposited in a secret squirrel folder on my website. Shhhhh!

I live approximately 2 miles from my favourite Pub/Restaurant , the Clermont Arms in Blackrock, Dundalk.

Apart from their Full Seafood Platter being irresistible they have plenty of Railway Posters and Paintings on show, sorry about the reflections etc. but here they are:

The Prom & Dundalk Bay are directly behind me.


P1070596.JPG
In the entrance lobby.


P1070582.JPG
Tucked away in a far corner is this Cuneo.


P1070583.JPG
With this Cuneo very close to it.


P1070584.JPG
Somewhere downstairs.

Two sailing routes.


P1070586.JPG
And another.


P1070593.JPG
Yet a fourth.


P1070588.JPG
Rather interesting Great Southern Railways (?) - (Pity about the reflection!)


P1070591.JPG
Can't finish without the Giant's Causeway.

Great watering hole, i was in there about 2 months ago when i was over visiting my daughter who lives in The Rock, it's run by Paul Smith, I used to live just along the front from it, I knew the guy who sourced all those photos and made a good living out of it, sadley he is no longer with us.
Have you been in The Brake which is owned by the same family, lots of old stuff in there also.

Even though The Brake is effectively a sister business I haven't been in it for years - much prefer the Clermont.

When I got home from the Clermont my wife said she thought The Brake had similar stuff, so I must pop along there as well.

And just to keep mumbles happy, here are the remaining Clermont posters:

P1070587.JPG


P1070589.JPG
Sorry about the disgraceful non-focussing! (I hadn't been drinking - honest!)


P1070590.JPG


P1070592.JPG
Unfortunately another awful reflection!


Now mumbles can see why I initially withheld these ones!
