This albumtells, in pictures, the story of the trouble which took place in Dublin during the last days of June and early days of July, 1922, when as a result of the fighting, some notable buildings were destroyed. Upper O'Connell Street, an important business thorough fare and one of the finest in the city, suffered severely, most of the premises at the East Side being entirely demolished. Perhaps the outstanding calamity is the destruction of the Four Courts, a magnificent and historic building, in which were housed important legal documents and valuable books, the loss of these being irreparable. Buildings in other parts of the city also suffered, and in addition to the destruction of property, many lives were lost. Photos are by Hogan, Dublin.
