An image from the lovely Elinor Wiltshire to start this week after the August bank holiday.
Fitzwilliam Street Lower
Houses on St. Stephen's Green in the process of destruction, while high up are posters for Fianna Fáil with an image of the leader and the slogan "Let Lemass Lead on"!
With some of the family I recently visited the museum at 14 Henrietta Street, and one of the images that came up was one of Elinor's from Ballymun, with the young girls we have already seen and identified. It gave me a lift to see her work, and its association with a time in Dublin!
