What is happening in the photo?

Superintendent George Lawlor and his family in Monasterevin, County Kildare. Relatively unknown outside Ireland, Lawlor established Ireland’s equivalent of England’s “Murder Squad”, namely the Garda Technical Bureau, and brought scientific methods to the national police force including fingerprinting and forensic photography. His work led to the arrest of back street abortionist Mamie Cadden in a very high profile case in the mid 1950s.
