Recently I took shelter in the Crawford Art Gallery and spotted this on display on the second floor. I’m sure that what took my eye was not intended as the most important aspect of the display.
I did stop and wonder as to the building shown on the certificate. It took a while but then I recalled that Nelson Quay became Warren Place which then became Parnell Place.
The condition that it was for many years as evidenced in photographs from the Buildings of Ireland below was bad enough but the current façade that has existed for a good few years must surely not be one of which the planners can be overly proud.
Interesting to spot the removal of the raised centre parapet from the Warren Place days.
