Pictures of Old Ireland

This is a series of what can be high bandwidth pictures I found in one of those CD bundles that you buy, you know, over 1,000,000 clip art sets. Most of these seem to be from a National Geographic story in 1915 or are engravings from old books.

I thought it might be nice to have something that portrays what life was like almost a 100 years ago, give us a sense of the life the old ones had.
