What is happening in the photo?

This collection of family photographs includes a wedding photograph made in Cork Street from the turn of the century. Included in this group photograph is her great-grandmother, who was born into a Hugenot family. Also included is wedding photograph from the 1940s and photographs of family holidays in Rush County Dublin.
