|Caption||GPO, Dublin city (1966)|
An exterior view of the GPO (General Post Office) on Dublin's O'Connell Street, photographed as design reference for the RTÉ Television drama series 'Insurrection' in early 1966. The GPO was built in 1814 to a design by Francis Johnston.
'Insurrection' was an eight-part dramatised reconstruction of the events of Easter Week 1916, shown to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The series was shown on eight consecutive nights on Telefís Éireann from 10-17 April 1966. The RTV (RTÉ) Guide extensively previewed the series in a special anniversary edition published on 8 April 1966.
