Douagh was a busy fishing village, and the fishermen's currachs (fishing boats) are visible on the shingle beach. The two well dressed men in the centre may be tourists organising a fishing trip, or a trip to the caves for seal hunting. Douagh is also spelt Dooagh.
Robert French was the chief photographer responsible for photographing three quarters of the Lawrence Collection. For more information, see the Dictionary of Irish Biography: http://dib.cambridge.org/viewReadPage.do?articleId=a3369
