"J.J. O'Molloy pulled a long face and walked on silently. They caught up on the others and walked abreast." (U7.1000)
"-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."
"- Something for you, the professor explained to Myles Crawford. Two old Dublin women on the top of Nelson's pillar.

SOME COLUMN! - THAT'S WHAT WADDLER ONE SAID

- But they are afraid the pillar will fall, Stephen went on. They see the roofs and argue about where the different churches are:" (U7.1004)

A PC published by Hely's showing the view from the top of Nelson's pillar (1903), looking towards Lower Sackville street. We can see the statues of Sir John Gray and O'Connell. This photo was taken during the Royal Visit to Dublin in July 1903, the city lavishly decorated for the occasion.
"Rathmines' blue dome," (U7.1011)
Rathmine's blue dome is the Roman Catholic 'Church of Mary Immaculate Refuge of Sinners.' It was built in 1854 'in the greek style' by Patrick Byrne, and later extended by W.H. Byrne who added a portico and pediment. The pediment is inscribed 'Mariae Immaculatae Refugio Pecatorum.'
"Adam and Eve's, Saint Laurence O'Toole's." (U7.1012)

I do not have (yet) an image of St Laurence of Toole's church, but this is a photo of Father Thomas O'Donnell, who was its Parish Priest end of 19c.
"But it makes them giddy to look so they pull up their skirts ....

THOSE SLIGHTLY RAMBUNCTIOUS FEMALES

— Easy all, Myles Crawford said. No poetic licence. We're in the archdiocese here.
—And settle down on their striped petticoats,." (U7.1012)
"peering up at the statue of the onehandled adulterer." (U7.1017)

In 1794, Lord Horatio Nelson lost his right eye at the siege of Calvi.
Then in 1797, while commanding the ship Theseus during an unsuccessful expedition to conquer Santa Cruz de Tenerife, he was shot in the right arm with a musketball, shattering his humerus. Since amputation was the only available treatment for most serious limb wounds (to prevent death by gangrene), Nelson lost almost his entire right arm, and later referred to the stub as 'my fin.'
"- Onehandled adulterer! the professor cried. I like that. I see the idea. I see what you mean." (U7.1019)
"DAMES DONATE DUBLIN'S CITS
SPEEDPILLS VELOCITOUS AEROLITHS, BELIEF
- It gives them a crick in their necks, Stephen said, and they are too tired to look up or down or to speak. They put the bag of plums between them" (U7.1021)
"and eat the plums out of it one after another, wiping off with their handkerchiefs the plumjuice that dribbles out of their mouths and spitting the plumstones slowly out between the railings.
He gave a sudden loud young laugh as a close. Lenehan and Mr O'Madden Burke, hearing, turned, beckoned and led on across towards Mooney's.
- Finished? Myles Crawford said. So long as they do no worse." (U7.1024)
"SOPHIST WALLOPS HAUGHTY HELEN
SQUARE ON PROBOSCIS. SPARTANS GNASH
MOLARS. ITHACANS VOW PEN IS CHAMP
- You remind me of Antisthenes, the professor said, a disciple of Gorgias, the sophist. It is said of him that none could tell if he were bitterer against others or against himself. He was the son of a noble and a bondwoman. And he wrote a book in which he took away the palm of beauty from Argive Helen and handed it to poor Penelope.
Poor Penelope. Penelope Rich." (U7.1032)

"They made ready to cross O'Connell street." (U7.1041)

Although the official name in 1904 was Sackville street, many Dubliners, likely Catholic and nationalist (including the narrator), already called it O'Connell street, the name it will officially take in 1924. This PC shows the view across the street from the GPO, which included the Imperial Hotel and Clery's Department Stores.
"HELLO THERE, CENTRAL!
At various points along the eight lines tramcars with motionless trolleys stood in their tracks," (U7.1042)
