Dublin—Almost 20 Years Ago.

Looking East on Wellington Quay toward the Loop Line Bridge and Dublin’s Custom House.

In March 1999, I exposed this portrait view from a rooftop on Wellington Quay. Entrance to the building was just opposite ‘The Temple Bar’.

Working with an N90S with a Tokina 400mm lens, I quickly composed this frame as Irish Rail’s evening ‘down Rosslare’ rolled across the Loop Line bridge behind an EMD-built 071 class diesel.

Last week, I scanned this Fujichrome Sensia II colour slide on using a Nikon Super Coolscan5000 scanner.

  1. ‘The Home of the World’s Greatest Pint’ an advertisement for Guinness.

  2. “THE HOME OF THE [clock@5:30] WORLD’S ” what? Is that complete sign memorable – like the “TRENTON MAKES [bridge pier] THE WORLD TAKES” sign as seen from the PRR when crossing the Delaware River?

    The late afternoon sun is vital for this composition.

    The clock shows 17:30 but the down Rosslare was surely 18:30. Maybe Summertime had come in but the clock had not been updated.
