A Tale of Two Cities - Exhibition
Dublin City Library and Archive, will host the exhibition “A Tale of Two Cities - Dublin 1913” during National Heritage Week. This two part exhibition contrasts the Dublin of the rich and the Dublin of the poor in 1913. “Infernos of Degradation” shows the slums, tenements, and rookeries of the city, highlighting the everyday privations and hardships endured by Dublin’s poor in 1913. In contrast, “Dublin can be Heaven” shows the other side of Dublin – its high society and Horse Show ladies, its prosperous middle-class
and its vibrant cultural scene.
We'll grab a coffee after somewhere close by.
