Re: Re: 800 Howth Road
Hi Arachne, ah yes, I know that house, it’s one of 6 designed by Robinson Keeffe in 1932 (same architects who designed the Technical Institute in Marino – 1936 – this is now Marino College, and had an awful 3rd floor mansard dropped on it from a height in the 70’s or thereabouts). The houses in Clontarf are really nice, the White House is the only one that still has the original windows & original balcony un-enclosed. I always wondered about the elephants, and the mural – I’ve photographed it in the past from across the road, but can’t make out if the mural isn’t of another building? – It looks different to the White House.
