Product Description

A photo taken from inside the now demolished remains of the premises of Charles L. Reis and Co., Fancy goods warehouse No. 10 & 11 Sackville St, looking across Sackville Street to The GPO. The Hibernian Bank to the left has also been demolished as Dublin returns to a form of normality. The trams are running again
and the tram passing by is numbered 244 with ads on the tram are for Donnelly’s Bacon, Hudson’s Super Soap and the Metropolitan Laundry. An ad for Bovril can just be made out on another tram at Nelsons Pillar Terminus.
The fallen flagpole from which the “Irish Republic” flag flew during the Rising can be clearly seen hanging precariously from the corner of the GPO.
