Dublin Skyline Panoramic Picture Framed, Ireland
This panoramic photograph of Dublin was taken by James Blakeway. It features Dublin's City Center as seen looking across the Liffey River. The first bridge as you look up the Liffey River is the famous Halfpenny Bridge followed by the Millennium and Grattan bridges. On the right is O'Connell Street, one of Dublin's main shopping streets. The building with columns along O'Connell Street is the General Post Office, sight of the bloody 1916 uprising that ultimately led to Ireland's independence from England. In front of the post office, standing almost 394 feet tall is Dublin Spire, which stands where a memorial to Horatio Nelson once stood.
