Reply To: First colour picture of Dublin
As far as I know, those two French women who photographed the west of Ireland in colour in 1913 passed through Dublin also but, unfortunately for us, did not take any pictures there.
If they had, we might have had some pictures of O’Connell Street prior to the 1916 destruction.
It’s hard to believe, isn’t it? – a colour record of the red brick Georgians running down to the GPO & Pillar. Some Victorian infill had already taken place of course, especially on the Clery’s stretch, but it was still a predominantly Georgian brick streetscape.
