Dublin, 1957/58.

Meet you under the clock at Clery's

Rather nice panoramic view "up" O'Connell Street from the top of Nelson's Pillar. We think this was taken around 1950, but would love confirmation or suggestions to the contrary. Very surprised when I zoomed in to see that the clock actually said Clery's Store - referred to by generations solely as Clery's! Date: Circa 1957/1958 and no later than 1961/62 (thanks to DannyM8, Mr Tayto, Archiseek). NLI Ref.: VR 5140
