Nostalgic and informative, these images capture a bygone Ireland at work, at play and at war!

Limerick photographer Franz S. Haselbeck (1885-1973) compiled one of the great Irish photographic collections but his work was not fully appreciated in his lifetime. His archive has been painstakingly catalogued by his granddaughter, Patricia. The breadth of subject matter and composition show a photographer with mastery of his craft as he chronicled an exciting period in Irish history.

Spanning seven decades, this selection is from almost 5000 surviving images and documents. Having attended the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art and being indentured to Finnerty's Photographic Co. in Westmorland St, Haselbeck travelled widely in Europe. After his return, he was employed by the renowned Louis Anthony, who had moved to Killarney from Alsace-Lorraine to establish a photography business, for three tourist seasons from 1910-1912. Haselbeck went on to set up a studio in Limerick and work as a press photographer.

His subjects included early tourism, studio portraits, merchants and traders, the Irish Volunteers, British military and R.I.C., gardaí, sport and country pursuits, street scenes, docklands and the construction of The Shannon Scheme commissioned by Siemens-Schuckert. He was passionate about his work, consistently embracing new equipment and techniques. Now, the work of this remarkable professional photographer can be fully appreciated by all.
