Three Castles Burning

Jun 23, 2020

To us today, it is the George's Street Arcade.

Yet to Victorian Dubliners, it was the South City Markets. It opened at a turbulent time for Dublin, as the middle classes continued to move beyond the canals. Its beautiful red brick exterior is so out of place in Dublin now, but why? Thanks to Las Fallon, fire brigade historian, for contributions on the 1892 fire.
