Re: Re: Dublin Street Lighting
Went to have a closer look at the Merrion posts to see if if any other posts are recognisable from the olden days, and I came across the one below. Nver looked at it closely before but interestingly it’s a much larger chunkier version of the c1903 posts that went up around the city centre (and that lined O’Cll St as seen before). I wonder why it is bigger than usual – maybe it stood in a prominent place, perhaps the one in front of O’Connell Mounument or at the junction of South Grafton St?
Anyway, all was fine and interesting etc until I glanced upwards. Having seen the smashed lamp up there before I didn’t pay much attention until I walked around a bit more. Recognise anyone? 😡
