Morning Mary is taking a bit of a punt today by posting two images of the same scene from the wonderful Eblana "upsidey downsie" collection. Since they are the same scene yet with great differences of population and activity we felt that together they would provide even more enjoyment?
This one is the GPO in Sackville Street (O'Connell St.) during a very quiet period with just two jarvey cars standing waiting for customers.
Collection: Eblana Photograph Collection
Date: Catalogue range c.1870-1890. Though likely mid/late c.1860s (see comments)
