Re: Re: Westland Row / Lincoln Place Baths
And matching robustly detailed bootscraper.
A much simpler one in the middle of the platform.
The corner shopfront, though reproduction, is well detailed.
An original chunky and spare granite pilaster lands right down at ground level here. Lovely stuff.
While Sweny’s retains attractive lamp holder ironwork and some apparently 1960s box signage hung on an even earlier wrought-iron bracket.
The rear of the buildings, as might be expected, are of yellow brick. Note the seemingly earlier over-zealous cleaning of the red brick of the upper side elevation.
A further fun curve gets squeezed in immediately inside the carriage arch (right).
The interiors of the block appear to have been very well restored, with maximum original fabric retained. Most windows and internal shuttering and boxes survived the fires, as did cornicing and chimneypieces, and repaired where necessary.
The main entrance door on Lincoln Place was substantially replaced. The panelling detail isn’t great and the mirror glass horrendous. Otherwise a good job.
The window directly above was also replaced, frustratingly in a Georgian idiom rather than two-over-two. It looks silly stranded on its own when all first floor windows are the latter format.
But otherwise a faultless restoration. Top marks.
The third floor apartment is available for viewing on Daft at the minute. €1500 for a double and single.
