The last thing you want in a post card is an old oil drum as seen on the far right of the view on the B/W litho cards. Actually you can only see half of the oil drum, removing this presented no problem to Valentine’s artist’s when they published the same view in colour.

Four colleens in foreground with three donkeys. With nine different titles there is plenty of variety in these cards. The R/Photo and B/W litho printings show five people coming out of the cottage on the right. The Kilcullen Tower is very prominent on the left and at the base of the tower are three men leaning on a fence. The coloured cards seem to have what appears to be a row of scaffold poles added behind the ruined church, which do not appear on the R/Photo and B/W cards, apart from that they are the same. For the Imperial International Exhibition the cards have been gone over by an artist the Kilcullen Tower and three men have been removed, together with the five people coming out of the cottage. Also the shamrock ironwork on the bracket supporting the sign board has been improved.

On this card the artist has virtually redesigned the card. Although the group of colleens are still recognisable, a hat has been removed from one girl, and a hat has been changed for a shawl on another. The building has been redrawn with extra windows and a door added, a low wall removed and replaced with chickens. The earliest known used card is dated 28 June 1911, so this comes into the White City exhibitions period. The coloured card has a grey small size ‘Throughout the World’ back with ‘Valentine Dublin’ on the left and ‘Printed in Scotland’ along the right side of the blank stamp box, back type FB 6. This card was republished several times with various backs, one in 1927 in Valentine’s ‘Colourtone’ Series. This card is included for the design relationship, the 1911 card is doubtful and the later ones are certainly not White City exhibition cards.

Note, this card is known where the plate containing the titles which were printed at a second operation, was put into the press the wrong way round. This resulted in the title being printed upside down or inverted and at the top of the card instead of at the bottom, where it should have been. It also resulted in the titles not being correct in relation to the views and in this case instead of being titled ‘Bridge in Court of Honour, Franco-British Exhibition, London, 1908.’ the card is titled ‘Palace of Women’s Work, Franco-British Exhibition, London, 1908.’
