Glena Cottage is famous for having been visited by Queen Victoria in August 1861 and for having the first running water toilet in Ireland – a stream ran under the bowl. It was built by Lady Kenmare for the use of visitors and was burnt down in 1922. The ruins are still a popular hiking destination. This particular image was designed by Henry Hollamby and it was most llikely made by Hollamby. However. Boyce. Brown & Kemp later acquired Hollamby’s stock and used many of the same blocks.
