A promotional shot taken among the ruins of buildings in Dublin's Denmark Street in 1963 for the radio programme 'The Maureen Potter Show'. From left to right, theatre/radio producer and former RTE Authority Chairman (1981-1985) Fred O'Donovan, Patrick O'Hagan, singer (and father of Eurovision Song Contest winner Johnny Logan) and actress/comedienne Maureen Potter. There is a mock tea party going on. O'Hagan and Potter are sitting on two discarded armchairs, Potter drinking from a china cup. O'Donovan is standing in left profile holding his cup. The ground is littered with rubble and rubbish.
The purpose of this shoot was to promote Potter's theatrical show from St. Francis Xavier Hall in Dublin, which was recorded and broadcast on Sunday afternoons on Radio Eireann. The first programme in this series was broadcast on 27 October 1963.
