Men of the North Irish Horse watering their mounts in the Sixmilewater River just below Mill Row. They would come down the riverside to just past Mill Row cottages, there was a pathway led down to the river.This was one of the last photographs taken by Mary Alice Young in 1915. Her two brothers along with several cousins and brothers-in-law were army officers.
