Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
Flickr is sometimes amazing! Via https://www.flickr.com/photos/internetarchivebookimages/ from a different angle, to the right. Oddly the vegetation (ivy etc) seems the same, but the open windows do not. Dated by 1916, which doesn't really help ...
And in 2006 via https://www.flickr.com/photos/jtinsley/ - https://www.flickr.com/photos/jtinsley/327476197/
BUT... the wikipedia article - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_College_(Dublin) - has this ...
"In 1902 the name Albert Agricultural College was adopted. ...", implying this photo with just "Albert College" written on it was before the 1902 name change.
Also an almost exact 'now' view - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Albert_college_front1.JPG
There is also a view of the west facade (to the left); I think it was taken at the same time as this 'cos of the three top right windows (top left windows here) are open in similar pattern - catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000040802
Where is everyone today ... ?
It began life in 1838 as a model farm for National Teachers. It is worth remembering that Agricultural Science was an important subject for National Teachers in a very agricultural country. Carysfort Teacher Training college in Blackrock had its own working farm until its closure in 1988. The Albert College was acquired by UCD in 1926. In 1979 it became the first of two National Institutes of Higher Education, a short lived experiment as they both became universities, DCU and UL, in 1989.

The title yesterday referred to "Mighty oaks coming from little acorns" and may have been lost on those who are not familiar with its current state. Today the Albert College and it's lands are home to Dublin City University a vast and densely populated place of learning which is developing a reputation for educational excellence. This building is now dwarfed by all those new buildings and for the visitor would be difficult to find!
