Re: Re: “Modern” Protected Structures in Dublin
What a spectacular juxtaposition – if anything even more preferable to what we have today, though doubtfully the case at street level. A remarkable sight from this location at least.
Isn’t the Georgian on the opposite corner of James Street a replica too? 🙁
As I recall itâ€™s dodgy.
Those two houses in the last picture were not right on corner of Jamesâ€™s Street. There were about four more again to the west of them, so somebodyâ€™s giving you false information about no Georgian houses being demolished for the bank, Emma. The ground-floor remains can be seen after demolition (below).
The authors of this publication (A Future for Dublin, 1975) agree with you about the juxtaposition, Graham.
