Urgently required pictures
July 9, 2004 at 10:32 am #707203
I would appreciate a little help, I am doing a little research on Baggot St Bridge and have sourced everything I need except a couple of pictures c1900-1940.
I would really appreciate it if anyone can lend me some or give a book reference as to the location of any.
Any help will be repayed in spades.

I have a friend at http://www.fantasyjackpalance.com and he has a good historical Dublin picture section. I looked and couldn’t find anything on the Baggott Street Bridge from back then, but if you ever need current photos, photos for the 70s or 80s, or old photos from the 40s or earlier, check there. Hes got some great stuff.
Sorry I could help further.

There’s an “early 1900s” photo (looking east and taken from an aerial position north-west of the bridge, it predates the construction of what was Parson’s bookshop) in Maurice Gorham’s “Dublin Yesterday” (Batsford, 1986 – originally published in 1972 and reprinted in 1983 as “Dublin from Old Photographs”). Plate 58, it was sourced from the National Library of Ireland, now the National Photographic Archive, and probably came from the Lawrence collection: it may even be the one listed as “missing” in the NPA’s on-line database…

Thanks Irishtown I have just had a very enjoyable couple of hours on fantasyjack I had forgotton just what a collection his fantasy now extends to.
Thanks that was anear on impossible image to source anyother way it would appear that Parsons gets all the attention it is a little special given its literary history.
Pints definitely owed, I also have one or two duplicate 1940’s OS maps of Dublin City Centre locations to repay with if you want to e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
They look fantastic when framed

about fjp- I emailed him about using some pictures for SSP a while back, he said i sure could. And if I needed shots of anything else to just ask him. But he doesn’t add to his photo collection on his website anymore. I hope he changes his mind soon. I love his pictures!

It’s some collection and he really does have a bit of everything, which is infinitely better than a huge collection in a pidgeon holed segment.
Morlan’s adaptation of a wide lens shot of the liffey from Eden Quay with a twisted panoramic from the Point Depot to the Ballast Offices should be dragged out again. It still is a work of art wherever it is hiding.
