Re: Re: ‘Dutch Billys’
Hard to say. Take the 1753 Tudor print of Essex Bridge & old Custom House – effectively a ‘ground view’ of Rocque. There are some gables, but other building types in the mix too.
Not everyone gets off on the idea of a continuous gabled streetscape anyway. Many people would find 10 or 15 gables in a row waayy too busy.
The Quays in their ‘organic Georgian’ form in the 200 years up to 1950 were probably the ultimate statement of Irish urbanism.
