Description   A view of Percy Place, Dublin city, seen from Warrington Place on the opposite side of the Grand Canal, photographed as design reference for the RTÉ Television drama series 'Insurrection' in late 1965. McKenny's Bridge (also known as Mount Street Bridge) is partially visible on the left of shot, as is the memorial to the Battle of Mount Street which took place here during the Easter Rising.

'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.
