New collection on our digital archive

For Explore Your Archive week we have published The John James Quinn (1873-1944) Collection on our digital archive. The collection contains photographs,  postcards, and personal letters created and collected by Irish photographer John James Quinn of Ballypatrick, Clonmel in the late 19th and early 20th century. The collection has been digitised and made available online through the generosity of Quinn’s granddaughter, Carol Hennessy.

John James Quinn was an avid photographer who documented his life in both Ireland and abroad through images. Between 1906-191?, he worked in Derby, England and Ipswich, Australia, photographing local people and places. The collection includes images from his voyages along with scenes of daily life in rural Ballypatrick, Ireland where Quinn farmed after returning to Ireland sometime before 1920.
