Wash Day-Galway


1 in stock

My grandmother was born in this row of houses on the Galway coast. It was known at that time, the turn of the 20th century, as Claddagh Parade, but is now known universally as the Long Walk. It is probably one of the most picturesque outlooks in the city and adjacent to the iconic Spanish Steps.  In 1900 it was less picturesque and the young woman strolling through in her traditional crimson Claddagh apron, is probably facing hard times. The strength of the shadows on the lime-washed walls, gives a hint to  the quality of the light on the Connaught Coast.
