Any excuse.

The Salthill Hotel, Kingstown (now Dun Laoghaire), County Dublin in the 1800s

My restored and colourised pre-1894 photo of the Kingstown Railway Company’s Bath in Kingstown, now Dún Laoghaire and in the background the old Salthill Hotel designed by J.S. Mulvany for the Dublin & Kingstown Railway Co. in 1843.

Unfortunately it had been left derelict for some time before being destroyed by fire in 1970 and was later demolished in 1972. Once our architectural heritage is gone, it’s gone forever!
