Panorama of College Green, Dublin (1902)

Irish street scenes and landmarks at College Green in Edwardian Dublin.

Non-Fiction 1902 2 mins Silent


These evocative scenes of Edwardian Dublin include views of the old houses of parliament (later home to the Bank of Ireland), and the gates of Trinity College. By 1902 the city's tram system was already electrified and this film shows a busy urban Dublin. The once-famous statue of 'King Billy' (William of Orange) on horseback can also be seen; it was later damaged by republicans and removed.
