The elusive James’s Street fountain watercolour by George Petrie below, dating I’d say to c. 1810.

Very nice gabled houses. The triangular-gabled house to the centre is likely to be the oldest, with its old fashioned roof form and segmental headed windows. The curvilinear-gabled house to the left is grand, but nonetheless typical of its type.

The large three-bay house has a curious, narrow hipped roof directly behind the parapet, making one wonder if this is a later insertion resulting from the removal of a double gable. And next door again, who knew O’Donnell & Tuomey were around two centuries ago?!

The terrace today. Dear oh dear.
