Time-Twisting, Mind-Warping Greystones Trivia #4May 1, 2016
It’s rare indeed that we here at GG HQ are left speechless, but when Steven Goodfellow and Paula McGuinness told me that they were sending over some early 1980s Greystones pictures taken by the latter’s father, well, what arrived pretty much knocked us sideways.
These shots are just so beautiful, and evocative, and downright cool.
There’s a real sense of just being there, back in time – walking up to Blacklion in the snow, heading to the South Beach on a ridiculously crowded summer’s day, messing about in beached boats down at the harbour, or, of course, playing tennis-on-ice in the shadow of the La Touche Hotel. We’ve all been there.
In an instant, these photographs bring back memories – from the 1980s, the 1990s, and, given just how evocative they are, even further.
Suffice to say, thank you, Luke McGuinness, for having such a fine hobby, and for being so damn good at it too.
