1881 – Nos. 96-100 Grafton Street, Dublin

Architect: William Mitchell


Fine commercial block at the corner of Grafton and Wicklow Streets. At one point, almost the entire block to Suffolk Street was the work of Mitchell – in addition to this building, he had rebuilt Nos. 100, and 105-106 in the same red brick. Weir’s the jewellers moved to No. 96 in 1905. Nos. 97-99 were demolished in the mid 1930s to be replaced with the Maskora Turkish Baths by George L. O’Connor – a facade with Art Deco features – now bookended by Mitchell’s design.
