O'Connell Street, Dublin

A postcard showing some nice trees along O'Connell Street in Dublin, Ireland.

Sent by Brian from Ireland. According to him, the trees are not there today.

This is from Wikipedia : O'Connell Street (Irish: Sráid Uí Chonaill) is Dublin's main thoroughfare. One of Europe's widest streets, it measures 49 m (160 ft) in width at its southern end, 46 m (150 ft) at the north, and is 500 m (1650 ft) in length. Known as 'Sackville Street' until 1924, Dublin Corporation renamed it in honour of Daniel O'Connell, a nationalist leader of the early nineteenth century whose statue stands at the lower end of the street, facing O'Connell Bridge.
