THIS IS NUMBER THIRTEEN ON HENRIETTA STREET [WHAT ABOUT THE DOOR]
I should mention that I have switched the the new version of Adobe Lightroom [renamed Lightroom CC Classic] which was launched today or yesterday. On my system it is really a lot faster but many of you may be upset by that fact that it is not available as a standalone product – it is subscription only.
If someone mentioned the ‘doors of Dublin’ I assume that this is not the image that pops into your head. It would appear that restoration work that has been underway has come to a halt.
Until today I had not really noticed that there are no steps leading from the street to the doorway.
The door is officially described as follows “Early timber door with eight raised-and-fielded panels and plain stone surround flanked by partially engaged Doric columns on plinth bases supporting full Doric entablature and triangular pediment complete with mutules, guttae and foliate panels. Door opens onto concrete paved platform, flush with street, bridging basement. Platform and basement enclosed by original wrought-iron railings with intermittent cast-iron urn finials set on moulded granite plinth wall and braced to façade. Matching iron gate to east and partially intact flag stones to basement area. Rear plot enclosed by tall rendered wall.”
