Found & Lost : Iron Heritage Of Dublin

Curtis, Joe
Dublin can be proud of its iron heritage, ranging from cast iron and wrought iron building structures, bridges, railway stations, railings & gates, street lamp-posts, pillar letterboxes, band-stands, fountains, glasshouses, and the humble manhole cover. The 19th century was the heyday of iron foundries, and the 20th century to a lesser extent, but such skilled industries are now lost, although leaving behind many mementos.

Forgotten Shop Signs Of Dublin

Curtis, Joe
Traces of Dublin's former business activities can still be seen on many buildings in the city centre, often at first floor level, such as old shop signs, lettering, logos, monograms, and even "ghost signs" where the removal of lettering has left stains on the wall. These signs were well known to Dubliners up until the 1960's, and this book will bring back happy memories of a lively and more interesting city, aided by numerous colour photographs. Besides shops, the book deals with former banks, clubs, and other organisations, where there are traces of their signs or logos.

Tall Chimneys of Dublin

Curtis, Joe
Up until the middle of the 20th century, Dublin had hundreds of tall industrial free-standing chimneys, puffing out smoke and fumes, serving the boilers and steam-engines of factories, laundries, hospitals and other institutions. With the advent of cheap and plentiful electricity, the chimneys became redundant, and were often demolished to save on maintenance costs or to secure some extra space in the factory yard.
