Perspective And A River Runs Through It


And a river runs through it (Dodder, Dublin)

A really fine O'Connor shot today with lots of interesting buildings and man-made constructions on view. A river neatly bisects the scene with a couple giving probably one of the few clues on the potential date of the shot! A great PoV from a photographic perspective. We're delighted to confirm that this stretch of Dublin's River Dodder hasn't changed too much - retaining Classon's Bridge, the pub on its north side, and Nine Arches Viaduct. Even the chimney from the Dartry Laundry survives. We're still wondering about the couple - with the lady's cloche-style hat and the man's spats-style shoes. They appear in several other O’Connor shots - so were perhaps acquaintances.... Photographer: Fergus O’Connor Collection: Fergus O’Connor Collection Date: Catalogue range c.1900-1930. Perhaps c.1920s? NLI Ref: OCO 108 You can also view this image, and many thousands of others, on the NLI’s catalogue at
