From the sublime of a proclamation that the Queen had died and her son had acceded to the throne to this, the nurses home for the Royal Infirmary in Dublin way back when; NLI has it all.
Welcome back to all who are not on holidays and we here at Library Towers hope you all had a happy Easter!

derangedlemur confirmed that this should fall into our "no longer standing" album. In that it was (perhaps just within the last decade or so) demolished to make way for the new Criminal Courts of Justice close to the Parkgate entrance of the Phoenix Park...


Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Catalogue range c.1865-1914

    To get a hill like that, it must be all the way down by Chapelizod or Ballyfermot, unless infirmary road used to look very different.

    Still, I suppose we have more criminals than nurses these days, what with one thing and another.

    It looks way too like that house the killer clown lives in in IT! But definitely interesting, as always.
