HOW TO COLOUR MATCH CLOTHING AND STREET FURNITURE – GRATTAN BRIDGE
I could not resist taking this photograph.
Grattan is a road bridge spanning the River Liffey in Dublin, Ireland, and joining Capel Street to Parliament Street and the south quays.
Starting in 2002, Dublin City Council undertook a reconstruction of the bridge deck, with granite paving for the footpaths and a set of benches with wooden seats and toughened glass backs.
As part of what was intended to be a “European-style book market”, in 2004 several temporary kiosks (prefabricated in Spain) were also controversially built on the bridge. Originally intended to create “a contemporary version of an inhabited bridge, such as the Ponte Vecchio in Florence”, these kiosks were later removed.
