The latter piece of tat is from the larger piece of tat on Harcourt Street – the new infill building. Shocking stuff.
The lead lion is from Newman House alright, from which Richard Whaley’s son famously jumped for a bet onto the roof of a carriage out on the road. Luckily for him, if not for his contemporaries, he lived to tell the tale.
The brick gable is extremely annoying.
The limestone pediment is clearly a flourish atop a Victorian commercial building of some kind, with a large limestone chimney stack to the rear – Lower Grafton Street or somesuch.
