Aeroplane on roof at Barrack Street, Waterford | Thanks to o… |

Thanks to ofarrl (see comments below), we now have a lot more information about this photo. The crash happened in November 1920 as a "Scout" plane, carrying despatches from Fermoy to Waterford Barracks and manned by flying officers Briggs and McKiehan, crashed into the roofs of two houses opposite the Barracks.
