1859 -Todd, Burns & Co., Mary Street, Dublin
Todd Burn’s Department Store on the corner of Mary Street and Jervis Street was a bustling enterprise on Dublin’s northside. A large warehouse designed and extended over many years but originally by William Caldbeck. Caldbeck was responsible for many of Dublin’s early department stores. This was described as being in the Grecian-style, a stucco classicism probably reminiscent of his store for Brown Thomas on Grafton Street.
Following a fire which destroyed the original Todd Burns building in January 1902, architect William Mitchell was engaged to design this newer “Palatial Dublin Warehouse” which opened in 1905.
