Thanks so much to Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin for emailing through some detailed information regarding one of our favourite images from the collection!
This image shows Rita Quinn neé Hughes (centre) and Francis Hughes (right) having tea in the Green Bay Cafe (which is now a B&B on the mall in Castlebar, Co. Mayo) with a friend of theirs after a journey to Dublin where both sisters were working as chemists.
They didn't realise the photo was being taken at the time! Both ladies are still alive. Rita still has her shop on Main Street Castlebar and Francis retired from being a locum pharmacist at Mayo General hospital three years ago.
