These young girls having a fun time on the beach were snapped at around 1900. The story behind the second photograph is quite remarkable as it is one of the first color photographs taken of Ireland. Two French women, Madeleine Mignon-Alba and Marguerite Mespoulet took many pictures in 1913 and this is one of those, having a young 14-year-old girl dressed in traditional clothes as the main subject.
