These are nineteenth century stereoview images of the monastic site at Glendalough, Co. Wicklow. In particular the show the area of the ‘Pattern Bank’ which is located between the graveyard and the road adjacent to the gatehouse to the site. We are interested in the history of the pattern bank and would like to see early images of how it changed over time up to and including when the tea house was located there.
