Dublin in the Detail

Phil LynottView Dublin in the Detail Image Gallery.

This gallery consists of images of Dublin street furniture, sculptures, statues and other landmarks, many of which you might not even notice as you walk by. The photographs are from the Photographing Dublin Collection, a collection of circa 900 photographs all taken by Dublin City Public Libraries staff during 2006. The Collection is held in the Dublin City Library and Archive.

The "Dublin in the Detail" gallery was created by Stephanie Krall, a German intern from the University of Applied Sciences in Kehl, during her internship in Dublin City Council in spring 2013.
