Wordless Wednesday - Outside T. A. Cronin's Bar in Brooklyn

A gathering outside T. A. Cronin's pub in Brooklyn.

T. A. Cronin himself - my great grandfather, Timothy Cronin, standing front and center.

My great grandmother (Timothy's wife), Ellen Casey Cronin, looking out from the first window by the bar's sign.

I'm in the process of trying to narrow down what year this photo might have been taken. I believe it's probably somewhere between 1912-1917...


  1. What a fantastic family photo you have. Thanks for sharing

  2. What do you suppose they were gathered around to watch, or do, or see? It's quite a crowd. And a fabulous photograph, especially since you can identify your ancestors!

  3. Thanks for both your comments! Asking my grandmother if she knows what the occasion was is on my agenda - those are her parents in the picture and she's the one who did a great job of holding onto and preserving her family's old photos!

  4. Great photo..Do you know where Timothy Cronin came from?
    I am also searching for an ancestor Tim Cronin who emigrated to USA . My Dad remembers seeing an old photo when he was young , of Tim Cronin's pub ,taken early 1900s, but isn't sure where it was taken. His father would also have been Timothy Cronin. His sister Bridget was my great grandmother.
