Sackville Street from Carlisle Bridge
Or O'Connell Street from O'Connell Bridge as we'd know it today. Chose this shot for its unusual low level angle on this street, and because it's so deserted - taken very early in the morning? This was taken between 1860 and 1883, but wondering if Russell & Co. at no. 5 can help us with dating, as that building is festooned with "The New East India Tea Company". Next door is Bewley & Evans, Apothecaries... Date: 1860-August 1864 NLI Ref.: STP_0049
Milk Float Corner
ughes Brothers' Dairy of Rathfarnham, County Dublin, operated this Smiths NCB Electric float, PIK 761, seen here with its milkman looking smart in his uniform. The float was presumably supplied by Murphy Electric of Dublin, whose name appears on the back of the print. NCB stood for Northern Coach Builders, who also built bus bodywork before the company specialised in electric vehicles and became SEV. Thanks to David Harrison for identifying the float manufacturer.
Defiant Irish laundry company added the text “Estd. 1912” to their logo in 1939 to distinguish themselves from another entity operating in Europe at the time. Ballsbridge, Dublin, Ireland. 1943.
