Transcending a Century

Here’s another contemporary black & white view on Dublin’s O’Connell Street.

In the window of Ulster Bank is a view from 1916 showing the ruins of Dublin’s General Post Office, destroyed during the 1916 Easter Rising. Old trams grind along near the old terminus at Nelson’s Pillar.

A child looks at us across the void of time.

Modern pedestrians are a focused on their phones or the ATM at the side of the bank.

Today, tracks are being re-built on O’Connell Street, and after a long absence tram service is expected to resume in 2017.
