With photographs of the Croker family of Lissa and Byblox, Doneraile, friends, the estate, relatives, pets, horses and the Awbeg river. A few items may be pre-1872 when Charles and Martin Croker of Lissa were still alive. Many of the photographs have captions. Constance married a Kenneth Weldon in 1906 and he appears in some of the photographs as do Jane, Martha and Charles Croker, Constance's mother and grandparents.
