Over 200 years before Google Street View, architectural draughtsman James Malton (1765-1803) decided to create a portrait of Dublin. At this time, Dublin was the second city of the British Empire and one of the most splendid in Europe. In a series of 25 prints, Malton depicted some of Dublin’s best-known buildings. Many of these, such as the Custom House and the Four Courts, were newly built at the time. Come and enjoy a trip through eighteenth-century Dublin in this beautiful exhibition in an eighteenth-century house on an eighteenth-century square.
The Irish Architectural Archive was established in 1976 to collect and preserve material of every kind relating to the architecture of the entire island of Ireland, and make it available to the public.
