I had some time to kill this evening so decided to run up to Chapters and check whether our next book club books (Wise Blood by Flannery O’Connor and The Spider’s Web by Joseph Roth) were available there, as we might have bought out the Hodges Figgis copies.
As it happened Chapters closes at 6.30 and I missed that by ten minutes, but in passing the top of O’Connell St I saw this street art. I love random things like this!
Speaking of ordinary people on O’Connell Street/Bridge, if you haven’t checked out http://www.manonbridge.ie you should, the website or the book. And I’m not just saying that because my Dad is in one of the photos! Arthur Fields took photos of Dublin people from the 1930s to the 1980s. Isn’t that amazing? Will Humans of New York still be taking photos in 50 years time?
