    The registration plates noted are from Tipperary South Riding, does not add much for the purposes of dating the photo. HI 1 to HI 9999 (Dec 1903 – Sep 1954).

    O’Gorman premises (Head Office, Sales Department & Showrooms) at 36 & 37 Parnell Street, Clonmel, Tipperary.

    I believe the 2 Fords (with starter handles) are the same type?
    The strange, very clean car windscreen.
    The near front side, wonky looking wooden wheel.
    A shop front display, comprising of a radiator, starter handle and lights!
    Car registration ‘HI 424’ on the radiator.
    And a werewolf of place, next door to the premises!

    See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O’Gorman_Coach_Builders
    This showroom is next to Hearns Hotel(which is still there today), where Charles Bianconi established his horse-drawn coach travel empire.
