RECENT STREET ART IN TEMPLE BAR – THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS
Bedford Row 38KV Sub Station In Temple Bar is located at junction of Bedford Row and Fleet Street.
The building in my photograph was designed by architect Vincent Kelly for the ESB [Electricity Supply Board] in 1926. It is one of the earliest examples of the International Modern style in Ireland and is one of the few public buildings of this style in the Dublin.
Constructed by McLaughlin & Harvey, it contained an electrical sub- station along with associated office accommodation. I am not sure if there is currently any office staff based in the building.
