From Flickr: “Portrait of two young girls reading.” by National Library of Ireland on The Commons

A charming portrait from the Clonbrock Collection to follow Col. R. Burke which was explored yesterday! The Clonbrocks were true amateurs with a great love of photography and they developed great skill in the art. This is a really lovely image that any photographer might be proud of!
