Re: Re: Dublin Department Stores
Thanks for that everyone. I’m very intrigued by the shop on Capel Street, as I didn’t know of a large store there (though I did know that Queen Victoria went on a major shopping spree when she visited here in 1853).
I have the book ‘The Very Heart of the City’, and it’s very useful but of course only covers McSwiney, Delaney/Clerys. The really difficult ones to track down images for are what were Todd, Burns and also Pims, presumably because they went out of business some time ago.
I had planned to spend some time looking at the Dublin and Irish Builder, and definitely will now that you advise it. In the meantime, if anyone trips over a drawing of Pims (from any period), I’d love to hear from you!
