Damaged it may be but this Imperial plate from the Lawrence Collection shows so much of one of the most beautiful buildings in Dublin. I love all the hackneys making their way into John's Road and the main entrance. There are plenty of notices on the notice board for the observant observer to observe?

Photographer: Robert French

Collection: Lawrence Photograph Collection

Date: Circa 1865 - 1914

    Monday 10 April happened in 1882, 1893, 1899, 1905, 1911 etc. Guessing 1893 from the look of it ...

    The winter prices from Dublin, Kildare etc were 30s (Sat to Mon) and 42s (3 day) (Freeman's Journal - Saturday 7 January 1899) None of the regular adverts in Freeman's Journal mention the 30th April cutoff (and summer price rise), even as late as 18th April.

    Architect was Sancton Wood, who was also responsible for many other stations. The building was also the headquarters of the GS&WR whose boardroom was located in the portion facing the photographer

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/91549360@N03 I wonder if the police in the other photo were security for the Duke and Duchess of York

    His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant, their Royal Highnesses the Luke and Duchess of York, and her Excellency Countess Cadogan, with the guests staying at the Viceregal Lodge, were present at Punchestown Races to-day. The Viceregal and Royal party travelled by special train from Kingsbridge at 12 o'clock to Naas Station, where the Lord Lieutenant’s carriages were waiting.
    (Dublin Daily Nation - Wednesday 12 April 1899) I wondered if they had also been present on other days of the meeting, but it appears they didn't arrive in Dublin until Monday.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/29809546@N00/ Very interesting... In the similar photo I linked above all the finery are heading to the entrance and the DMPs are so standing to only observe traffic coming from the river. The shadows would suggest the photograph was taken around midday. You may well be right that it's a Royal race day at Punchestown.... Three policemen standing in the road as they are would suggest something important was going on. i suppose we'll never know.

    The building certainly displays the confidence folks had in the future of railways and it only built 12 years after the first between Westland Row and Kingstown in 1834. T'was full steam ahead.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/91549360@N03/ The early railway terminus’s were, like bank buildings, meant as a statement of their importance and permanence. Hopefully would inspire confidence in prospective investors
