1919 – Post 1916 Reconstruction of O’Connell Street, Dublin


Architectural elevations for the reconstruction of O’Connell Street in 1919 after the almost complete destruction of the part of the street from the Pillar to the bridge. Looking at the elevations of the eastern side, it’s interesting that Sackville Place was never closed off for symmetry.

Contrasting the new buildings as designed for commercial enterprise with the older stock dating from the Wide Streets Commissioners and adapted to commercial use over time. Published in The Irish Builder, July 12 1919.
