Here’s a little more info on the Parnell Street Billys.

The facade to Parnell St. with the roof layout that can only have been faced by the rare ‘three gables shared by two houses’ arrangement and the massive central chimney stack.

The stairs of no. 157 (righ hand house) showing quite light bannisters, but a nice heavy low hand rail with characteristic early sweeping curve up to the knewel post.

The pair as they appeared in Shaw’s directory of 1850 with a half round? window in the attic storey of 158, not unlike the Camden Street house.

The pair as shown on Rocque’s map, 1756. The returns are shown each on the right hand side, but in reality they are paired in the centre.
