An unusual commission for the Poole studios. Far from the elegance and wealth of a Papal Count's wedding yesterday, here are new built homes in an image commissioned by the British Portland Cement Association. Where were these houses and are they still standing?
In an amazing (even baffling) show of investigation skill, derangedlemur
singlehandedly and quickly pinpointed the location to Town Wall st
in New Ross, County Wexford. In doing so, our second question was also answered - that this near 90 year-old development at Ard na Gréine/JKL Place (built in the early years of the state's own development) is still a feature in New Ross today.....
