Irish Historic Towns Atlas,

Dublin III, 1756-1847 by Rob Goodbody

The talk will trace the history and development of Dublin through the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century when many of the city’s modern streets were laid out. A series of loose sheet maps present a variety of views that illustrate Dublin over the period. Colour maps depict the city in 1847 at two different scales, and these can be compared with a modern town plan of 2012.
