A view of the bustling traffic on Sackville Street, now known as O'Connell Street. The Nelson Pillar, stands proud outside the General Post Office. This column of Nelson predates the one in London by some 30 years. From a series of coloured views by S.F. and H. Brocas, published between 1818 and 1829, which 'give as vivid a picture of the Dublin of the first quarter of the nineteenth century as Malton gave of the Dublin of the last quarter of the eighteenth century' (Bonar-Law).
