These glamorous portraits were taken by Ross Photographers of Dublin in the 1940s. The studio was set up in 1929 and is one of the few independent Irish businesses still operating on Grafton Street today. I really like their colourful yellow sign which brightens up the dull Dublin sky in the photo above. I also located advertisements for the studio in daily newspapers from the 1930s. Jason Bitner of Found magazine discovered an entire studio collection in LaPorte, Indiana and I am a fan of his book which was published by Princeton Architectural Press. A documentary film on the collection is also in production.
