For many years an iconic building in the heart of Dublin it was torn down much to the dismay of many Dubliners and theatre goers! The streetview of this won't be pretty!
I have always felt that I missed out on something important in never having attended the Theater Royal. Alas, it had been demolished a few years after I was born. I remember well my parents and grandparents speaking fondly of many excellent shows they had seen there.
I am convinced by the research, particularly from Niall McAuley
that this photo was taken sometime between 1910 to July 1912 and I have updated the date range accordingly.
