Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.

Yes! Looking south from Glasnevin Bridge. The terrace of three mock-Tudor gables is still there. Streetview - goo.gl/maps/P2YJb665vBZ9H39o6

Is that the Botanic Gardens behind the trees?
Nos. 19/20 tram route electrified end of 1899.
Suck Diesel, yes. The gardens are off to the right and the main entrance is just around the corner.
A glimpse of the Fern House at right (see note)?
And it does indeed say "Glasnevin Post Office" above the post office door. Nice work.
Buenas fotos antiguas .
Yes, the old bridge over the Tolka at Glasnevin (just beside the rose gardens of the Botanic Gardens).
The row of shops has a date of 1901 on the front (see note).
Gent in a boater suggests 1901-1910 (ish).
