Our picture shows Joseph Byrne leading a horse and float loaned to him by his employer, Con Culhane of Ballydowd.
It was on Easter Monday, the only free day except for Christmas Day, on which workmen had a day off.
The horse and float were used to transport Lucan people to the Fairyhouse Races – it must have been a long day for all including the poor horse!
