1870s – Arnott’s, Henry Street, Dublin

Architect: G.P Beater

1546

Like others of the Dublin department stores of its era, the original Arnott’s started life as a brick faced building that was later extended and stuccoed over to present a consistent facade. It seems that the original block which stretched from Princes Street to Henry Street was completely destroyed in 1894 after a fire. G.P Beater who was responsible for the replacement store was involved with Arnott’s from 1875 onwards, designing a restaurant and confectionery shop also on Henry Street.
