"-When they have eaten the brawn and the bread and wiped their twenty fingers in the paper the bread was wrapped in, they go nearer to the railings." (U7.1002)

From a Dublin guide (1895): "No stranger should fail to ascend Nelson's Pillar, as from its summit, which is securely railed through, a map-like view of the surrounding city and delightful panorama of the neighbouring country may be obtained. To the north, in clear weather, the Carlingford and Mourne mountains, in the county of Down, are distinctly visible; to the east is Dublin Bay; to the south, Killiney and the Wicklow mountains, extending far into the distance; and to the west are the Dublin hills, with their beautiful wooded bases stretching towards the rich plains of Meath and Kildare."
