  1. Sorry, that sounded a bit preachy. It's an interesting history for sure, and if you've read up on it you are possibly more knowledgeable than I.

    If memory serves (and it may not), this is De Valera reviewing the troops after Michael Collins' death:

    It's obviously 1931; I'm trying to figure out what the guy (front-left) is applying for & wondering if everyone else around the stove are waiting their turn to apply. At something like 16% unemployment maybe they are applying for a job?

    Yes, they were. If memory serves, they were applying with TVA.

    Can't find too many images of Machiavelli wearing a cap, but if this is indeed historically accurate, I kinda like the head gear.
