Hey Paul

I'm almost certain that I sent you pictures of Nassau St including the Law Club at some point last year via e-mail.

However, I would add a couple of provisos:

1: The picture failed to attach due to my ineptitude!

2: The picture I took was of a framed photo in The Porterhouse which is in one of the adjoining buildings (formerly the famed Jammetts Restaurant I think?). Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of myself and a very helpful Bar Manager we couldn't prise the picture from the wall and thus I had to take it inside with the flash. Hence, it may not be of Archiseek quality.

As an aside, thanks for posting the engraving of the Law Club in the buildings section. As somebody stated on the Nassau/Dawson St thread, Frank McDonald in The Destruction of Dublin bemoans the quality of the Norwich Union and adjoining Office Blocks without even mentioning what they replaced. I guess that's proof that it that former era the Destruction of "Georgian" Dublin was what had currency. As a result, some very fine Victorian buildings, rare enough in Dublin, were allowed to be obliterated.

Yes, it's quite remarkable how McCurdy's Law Club fell off the radar completely - including from the safety net of Freddie O'Dwyer's 'Lost Dublin'. Glad to see it's been entered back onto the record :)

Some building are difficult to get pictures of - they may be in the background but not the subject

Here's another piece of Victorian frippery on Nassau Street

Thanks, don't know if I'd subscribe to "frippery" personally I always find Victorian has a certain unabashed flamboyant charm when compared to the restrained rulebook grandeur of Georgian.

I'm almost certain the law club is in Lost Dublin, but there's only a drawing and then a photo where it's in the background

I think it appears in a title called Central Dublin too. However, the angle of the photo is so acute that only the distinctive projecting bays can be seen.
