LEGG BROS ON HILL STREET

LEGG BROS ON HILL STREET

This building caught my attention as did the ZV number plate on the old car. I cannot determine if someone attempted to remove “LEGG BROS”. Company records appear to indicate that the company was dissolved more than twenty years ago.

In December 1898 the Irish Times described Hill Street as follows: “Nowhere else in Dublin, not even in Church Street, on the Northern side, or in the Liberties on the Southern side, is a project of this kind more essential and absolutely necessary. The squalor of the neighbourhood is intense, and it is pitiful to see children at play on the sidepaths crowded with various wares or on the dirty street.”
