Trinity College Dublin, 1990

Taken by photographer, Colin Scudds. And for all the modernisation in the intervening years, it makes me laugh that there's horse dung is in this shot...

 

You can compare this view of Trinity College with its companion photo taken approximately 90 years earlier as part of the Lawrence Photographic Project 1990/1991, where one thousand photographs from the Lawrence Collection in the National Library of Ireland were replicated a hundred years later by a team of volunteer photographers, thereby creating a record of the changing face of the selected locations all over Ireland.

 

For further information on the Lawrence Photographic Project, read all about it on our NLI Blog.

 

Date: Wednesday, 22 August 1990 at 15:30 (weather conditions - sunny with a little cloud)
