Butt Bridge is a road bridge across the Liffey that joins George's Quay to Beresford Place. The original bridge was a structural steel swivel bridge, opened in 1879. It was named for the leader of the Home Rule Movement Isaac Butt (shown on this CDV), who died that year. The swing section, made of wrought iron and weighing 200 tons, ran on a series of cast spoke wheels and was powered by a steam engine, which was housed on a timber pier on the downstream side of the bridge. The swing action allowed boats to pass and berth in the river as far upstream as Carlisle (later O'Connell) Bridge.

Thomas Power O'Connor (1848 - 1929), known as T. P. O'Connor and fondly as Tay Pay, was a journalist, an Irish nationalist political figure, and a Member of Parliament for nearly fifty years. O'Connor founded and was the first editor of several newspapers and journals: the Star (1887), the Weekly Sun (1891), the Sun (1893), M.A.P. and T.P.'s Weekly (1902).
Félix Pyat (1810 - 1889) was a French Socialist politician (elected twice to the National Assembly) and journalist, born in Vierzon (Cher). He was known for his virulent left wing writing and political activism, and outbursts against the authorities: he proposed a motion to abolish the presidential office; he joined the abortive radicalist attempt of June 13th 1849; he glorified regicide after Orsini's attempt against Napoleon III; he took part in the revolution of September 4th 1870 (demanding a republic). He published 'Le Combat' (suppressed in 1871) then the equally virulent 'Vengeur'. He repeatedly left France (for Belgium, Switzerland, or England) to avoid prosecution.
He was active in the Paris Commune (March-May 1871), directing acts of violence such as the overthrow of the Vendome column and the destruction of Thiers's residence and of the memorial chapel to Louis XVI. He escaped the revenge of the Versailles government, and crossed the frontier in safety. He was condemned to death in absentia in 1873, but came back to Paris after the general amnesty of July 1880. He was elected deputy for Bouches-du-Rhone in 1888, took his seat on the extreme Left, but died at Saint-Gratien the following year.
