007 1875 Rural Ireland Interior 3
Even the poorest homes in rural Ireland had aesthetic value for those who lived in them. This painting from 1875 shows how people too poor to afford a dresser might stand their few plates on edge on wall shelves for decorative effect. If Denis was not a "strong farmer" perhaps the interior of his home looked more like this.  [Photo credit: "Rural Ireland - The Inside Story," edited by Vera Kreilkamp, published by the Boston College McMullen Museum of Art, 2012, page ]

007 1880 Portrait of a Strong Farmer
This painting from 1880 depicts a "strong farmer" sitting on a bench outside his landlord's office waiting to pay the rent. While there are varying definitions, one source says that a "strong farmer" was one who leased 30 acres or more. In that case, even if Denis and John Cashman were co-tenants, Denis would probably have been considered a "strong farmer." - Sarah Evans [Photo credit: "Rural Ireland - The Inside Story," edited by Vera Kreilkamp, published by the Boston College McMullen Museum of Art, 2012, page 154]

012 1899 Fire on Bunker Hill
012 1899 Fire on Bunker Hill
Quincy Patriot - The alarm from Box 49, at 1:32 o'clock Sunday morning, was for a fire in an unoccupied house on Bunker Hill avenue owned by Michael Shea. The house was situated in the woods, some way from the street, and the fire was well under way when the department arrived. The nearest hydrant was over 1000 feet away and as it was impossible to drive a hose wagon anywhere near the fire considerable unavoidable delay was experienced in getting water onto the burning building. The only way it was possible to get water to the building was by pulling the hose off the wagon and then dragging it through the woods to the scene of action. Then the building was thoroughly soaked. The loss was $200. The cause was undoubtedly incendiary.

Sunday night at 8:40 another alarm was sounded from Box 49 and it proved to be for a fire in the same house. At this fire a line of hose was laid from a hydrant on Willard street and nearly 2000 feet was required to reach the building. The fire caused an additional loss of about $50.

This photo was taken at the beer garden of the La Tropical brewery (Cerveceria La Tropical) in Havana, Cuba. From Tropical Brewery postcard: "Owned by the Tropical Beer Co. it is a paradise of beautiful flowers and exotic plants. This beauty spot is visited by thousands of tourists. Free beer is given to all visitors." From "Cuba and It's Music: From the First Drums to the Mambo, Volume 1" by Ned Sublette:  "These social clubs also had picniclike festivities , complete with the music of their homeland as well as habaneras and danzones, at the sumptuous new gardens opened by the La Tropical brewery. Cerveza Tropical was Cuba's first domestic brand of beer, brewed since 1891. The vast Jardines de la Tropical complex on the Rio Almendares, created in imitation of the grand beer gardens of Germany, opened in 1904. If the numerous overhanging trees made La Tropical a little dank in the winter months, in the sweltering tropical summer it was the coolest spot around. La Tropical's competitor, Cerveza Polar, opened up their own gardens. By the 1920s, these festivities attracted up to fifiteen thousand people." From the personal photo collection of Jay Cashman.

Ledger - Hold Funeral Tomorrow For Michael Shea - Services at St. Mary's Church for Former Street Head - Funeral services for Michael E. Shea, for many years superintendent of streets in Quincy, who died Saturday following a long illness, will be held tomorrow morning at the residence, 285 Common street, West Quincy, and will be followed by a requiem high mass at 9 o'clock in St. Mary's church, West Quincy. "Mike" Shea, as he was familiarly known throughout the city, was engaged in the general contracting business and for several years was superintendent of streets, serving under the late Mayor William T.

He was the son of William Shea, who was a trooper in the "Light Brigade" of the British Army when it made its memorable attack on the Russian batteries at the battle of Balaklava in the Crimean War. This attack was immortalized by Lord Tennyson in his poem "The Charge of the Light Brigade." All the surviving members of the brigade were decorated with the Victoria Cross by Queen Victoria herself. This trophy was kept for years in the old Shea homestead on Common street, but after the house was damaged by a fire many years ago is disappeared and was never found afterwards. The survivors include the widow, five daughters, Mrs. Catherine Keegan, Mrs. Elias Canfield, Mrs. William Cushman, Miss.
