Re: Re: Heuston framework plan
Spotted a large building on the corner between the HSE building and heuston station on a 1950s aerial photo in the national photographic archieve. Odd building, 5 storeys high and quite narrow, dutch billy style gables, sitting right on corner of johns road and steevens lane. Looks rather peculiar, you’d never have imagined anything was ever there. Anyone know what happened it or what it was?
It was the, Victorian era, Nurses Home building, serving Stevens Hospital, and it was cleared at the time that the hospital was renovated and turned into Eastern Health Board offices (HSE). I remember it as an impressive structure, but I think the back and sides, which were probably more visible than the front, were a bit of a mess.
Oh dear! I sense another disagreement about to break out
