Once the haunt of "high society", who favoured the arts, and today the haunt of those who favoured the arts as inspired and paid for by "high society"! Charlemont House, home to the Hugh Lane Gallery, is such a pleasure to visit either casually or for one of the many interesting exhibitions.

Photographer: Elinor Wiltshire

    An oddity via Trove - "An Important Meeting at Charlemont House" by members of the "Pig-fattening Society" in 1844 - . Gives a bit of an idea what used to happen there.

    Here is an 1910-30 Eason in the archive. The pillars and kerbs have been changed somewhat, and the flagpoles are new since the Eason.

    Another Eason possibly later than the first, has no obelisks at all.
