We’ve seen shots of Nelson’s Pillar before, but usually in the distance or in a state of chassis following its blowing up in March 1966, so I was delighted to find this fine view of it in our Eason Collection.

This photo also gives us a joyous assortment of trams – the no. 8 to Dalkey; the no. 29 to Fairview; the no. 20 to Rialto Bridge; and I think the no. 3 to Westland Row and Ringsend; and a car with reg. no. IK 9729.

There’s also an infuriatingly obscured news poster which seems to be screaming about "Startling Evidence"!

Date: Circa 1927?
