At the moment I am devoting a lot of time and energy to photographing and identifying old buildings before they disappear.

Some years ago we had a huge property boom here in Dublin followed by a massive economic crash and now we appear to be at the beginning of a different type of development boom and as a result I suspect that many old and landmark buildings will have disappeared before anyone has realised what has happened.

It has taken me about ten years to discover what this building was. One of my problems was that I thought it was on Bolton Street rather than Dorset street. Bolton street is much shorter that I believed it to be despite the fact that I have lived on the street for 21 years.
