|Caption||Ruins on Waterford Street, Dublin city (1952/1953)|
The ruins of a demolished building on Waterford Street, Dublin city, in 1952 or 1953. The remnants of a wooden window frame, or perhaps part of an interior wall, can be seen on the left.
Waterford Street ran from Marlborough Street to Lower Gardiner Street. It was originally called Upper Mecklenburgh Street and was renamed Upper Tyrone Street before finally becoming Waterford Street. The notorious red light district, Monto, was based mainly in Mecklenburgh Street.
*Note the area of negative damage on the top of frame.*
