Home Forums Ireland ‘Dutch Billys’ Re: Re: ‘Dutch Billys’


I don’t have time for writing detailed reports for internet boards at the moment, most of which would anyway just be reiterating material put forward in the last numerous pages of this thread and the Thomas Street thread about the absence of any real evidence for this building type, the lack of stylistic precedents anywhere, its unlikeliness as a style, the holes in the evidence for the claimed examples etc.

An associate of mine who might be described as ‘a significant heritage figure’ (beware of credentialism) agrees with me on the twin gable issue.

As a matter of interest, what does Peter Walsh – significant authority on Dutch gable architecture in Dublin that he is – think?
