Irish Pilgrims in Lourdes, 1929

Irish Pilgrims in Lourdes, 1929

In 1929 a group left Cork on a pilgrimage to Lourdes in France. While this photo wasn’t taken in Cork it does have Cork people in there and my paternal grandmother is among them. I scanned this a few weeks ago. This is a resized image as the original is over 13,0000 pixels wide. It took me three scans to get it right with overlapping layers to hide the joins as this is a very wide photo.

Amazingly, the photographer who took the photo worked for a company that still exists! They’re on Facebook and the background of this photo looks very familiar!
