Dublin – Mapping the City
October 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
This lecture explores some lesser-known maps of Dublin selected from a larger project tracing the history of the city in maps.
Included will be that produced for the funeral of Daniel O’Connell in 1847, one showing the extent of a typhoid fever epidemic in 1893 and another detailing the management of the Eucharistic Congress of 1932. There will also be a view of Dublin as seen by the Soviet military in 1980.
This event is presented by the Old Dublin Society.
No booking required.
