My grandfather, John Morrison Torrens (1877 - 1944) ran the Chemists shop at 85 North Main Street, Youghal in the early 20th century. One of his hats was that of a professional photographer. More details of him may be found in John Morrison Torrens biography. These are some of his magic lantern slides which have been re-photographed with a Canon DSLR. Another page explains how these slides were re-photographed.
