The Sir John T. Gilbert Commemorative Lecture, 2007

The Gilbert Lecture Series was inaugurated in 1998, the year which marked the centenary of the death of Sir John T. Gilbert. The aim of the series is to celebrate the life and work of Gilbert, and the history of Dublin, the city whose past he wished to uncover and bring before a wider public.

The tenth annual lecture in the Gilbert Lecture Series, Michael Corcoran's 'Through streets broad and narrow: a history of Dublin's trams', was delivered on 23 January 2007, at Dublin City Library & Archive, Pearse St., and chaired by the Lord Mayor, Councillor Vincent Jackson.
