In 1833 Adelaide Road in Dublin is named after Queen Adelaide the wife of William IV and before that it was known as Old Circular Road. I must admit that, until recently, I was unaware of Queen Adelaide.
The following buildings of interest are located on the street:
Presbyterian Church 1841 St Finian’s Lutheran Church 1863 Synagogue (former) 1892 Royal Victoria Eye And Ear Hospital 1901 1929 Kiosk which was a tea room and public toilet. To the best of my knowledge the public toilet was women only. I would describe this as being on Leeson Street.
Note: Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen (Adelaide Amelia Louise Theresa Caroline; 13 August 1792 – 2 December 1849) was Queen of the United Kingdom and Hanover from 26 June 1830 to 20 June 1837 as the wife of King William IV. Adelaide was the daughter of George I, Duke of Saxe-Meiningen, and Luise Eleonore of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, is named after her.
