O'Connell Street around 1900 looking south. Most of the buildings were totally destroyed during the 1916 Rising. Some never rebuilt including what looks like a church on the left hand side of the street.
The 'Irish Republic' flag flying over the GPO during the Rising. It was made by Mary Shannon, captured by the British troops after the surrender of the rebels, was returned to Ireland in 1966 and is now on display in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin
Horse-drawn Omnibus, Westmoreland Street, Dublin
Today we have the battle of the horse-drawn tram versus omnibus photos. It's Cork (the real capital of Ireland?) versus Dublin (the real capital of Ireland!). Which is the best image? That might be a little subjective, so perhaps which can we find out the most about?
