Reply To: ‘Dutch Billys’
Yep, the Volunteers on College Green, probably the best painting conveying what an area of Dublin was originally like.
Surprised nobodys mentioned the Rubrics in Trinity, dating from 1700 with their extremly convincing 1890 dutch gables, and overall the oldest structure on the Trinity campus.
I don’t think there are any standard 17th century townhouseinteriors left in the city, aside from a few staircases that have survived subsequent alterations.
Standard features included corner fireplaces, lower ceilings than the later Georgians and simple cornicing.
Oh,and the obligatory green or buff coloured panelling of course (yuck)
