Evening all

Does anybody know of any resources that more or less home in on these areas of interest?

I need to get info on the plans and work carried out on the street after the trashing it got in 1916 and 1922 and then when they started to modernise it between 1940 and lets say 1980

Were there any Integrated Area Plan type things or studies on the street produced around these times?

Actually, if theres anything out there on the building/delapidation of the street in the 1980's (apart from Frank McDonald's crits) ID like to know about it aswell

As usual, thanks in advance for the help...you learned lot!

Have a look at 'Reinventing Modern Dublin, Streetscape, iconography and the Politics of Identity' By Yvonne Whelan.
It might be a good place to start.
