Some of the elder lemons here will remember Sachs Hotel which was all the rage in the 1980's and early 1990's. It was housed in the terrace in the middle left of this photograph, I spent some time there myself when I was at College, good memories indeed.

    I'd be inclined to guess Morehampton Road.

    At first glance, I'd have said Sir Patrick Dunne's. Let's have a look on streetview. Edit: Nope. Not grand canal street.

    The OSI map linked by Signor Lemur above dates from 1907, and does not show trees on the left side, only on the right. The trees on the right look older than those on the left in this shot. I'd say later than 1907.

    The double diamond sign on top of the tram means it's a Donnybrook to Phoenix Park tram.

    The tram seems to have BBB in place of a number??

    I wonder if the trees in the photo are the same ones as in the street view?

    I've got to say, it's a real shame those lamps aren't still there. Absolutely beautiful.

    I've been up and down on the 46a a few times recently, so Morehampton Road should be familiar! [https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley] According to this history of the no. 10 bus, the double diamond also means that it has to be after 1918. Apparently they decided that Dubliners were no longer illiterate so they could use numbers instead.

    I thought the tram said BBB, but lookie here in the archive, a shot of a tram in Harcourt Street sporting the number 258 in extremely fancy font. (Not that this is necessarily the same tram, but that font could make any tram number like 383 look BBB-ish).
