STREET ART AND A BLACK DOOR AT UPPER CLANBRASSIL STREET
Not sure if the door was dark blue black.
I purchased a Sony A7RIV at the end of 2019 but have had little opportunity to use it until today which is more than a little annoying. To be honest it is a joy to use especially when combined with a Zeiss Batis 25mm lens.
A recent update appears to have resolved the issues that I have had with Geo-Tagging when using this and the earlier A7RIII.
From earliest times the street formed part of the Slige Chualann, which ran south from the settlement at Áth Cliath. It took its name from Cualu, the district in which Dublin was situated and which lay between the mouths of the Liffey and the Avoca (in County Wicklow).
In 1868, a new street was opened to connect Harold’s Cross with Lower Clanbrassil Street. The Lord Mayor, the Aldermen and Frederick Stokes, who had purchased the land and led the project, attended the opening. The street was to be called Kingsland Street, but that name was never used and it became Upper Clanbrassil Street.
Between 1886 and 1892, 128 houses were built off Clanbrassil St. (on Daniel St. and Harty Place) by the Dublin Artisans Dwelling Company for the industrial and working classes.
Lower Clanbrassil St. was known as part of Little Jerusalem because in the first half of the 20th century it was at the heart of the Jewish community in Ireland. The first Jews fleeing conditions in Lithuania (then part of the Russian Empire) arrived in the early 1870s and eventually settled off Lower Clanbrassil St. In the following decades many of them settled along the South Circular Road, both sides of Leonard’s Corner, and in the side-streets off it.
