Kerry - Ireland in the 1930s An amazing collection of colourised photographs were taken by photographer Branson DeCou (1892-1941) between 1932 and 1935. DeCou spent nearly thirty years travelling the world and his images of Ireland give us a rare glimpse into a way of life that has long since disappeared. The photos were originally taken in black and white and colour was then added by DeCou with aniline ink.
