This photo of T&J Macken, Building Contractors has been on display at the checkout at Irish Building Supplies (IBS) in Patrick Street for years. I scanned it today in the hope that the forum would find it interesting and maybe someone could put names to those in the frame - or know someone who can. A caption at the rere indicates that it was taken at Carysfort Convent in 1936

We never got any names for this photo. My old pal worked for Mackens most of his working life. He is late 90's now and his sight is fading but I would love to be able to tell him about this photo. Has any one any ideas ...I know the easy option is to go into IBS and ask but,...who wants easy options?????
I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.
