I agree that Fishamble Street is the more likely location.
I had seen that Flora Mitchell view before so I had my doubts, but you never know how accurate a painting is. I’m still not entirely convinced it matches up with the aerial photo.
What was leading me toward Blind Quay was the three ‘gable’ fronted buildings shown in the aerial view – that lead up to where the Czech Inn bar is today – they’re not on Rocque, I was thinking they were built over the house in O’Colmain’s painting that had been reduced to single story.
Am I correct in saying this one is also looking eastward along Blind Quay? With Smock Alley theatre in the distance.
