galway bay 1945

This National Museum of Ireland card features a limpid photograph of Galway Bay taken in 1945 by Padraic Mac Dubhain. It was sent by an Irish postcrosser named Siobhan, who wrote that sailing boats such as these were used in the past to carry food, animals, and other things to the islands off the west coast of Ireland. Wish I were there.
