|Caption||'Dublin Suite' (1986)|
Two young girls, dressed identically, walk down an exterior fire escape staircase during the recording of the RTÉ Television programme 'Dublin Suite', in Dublin city in May 1986. The location is probably the rear of the St Vincent de Paul Night Shelter on Back Lane, but this has not been definitely confirmed. The dome of the Roman Catholic St Nicholas of Myra Church on Francis Street is visible in the background.
'Dublin Suite' was a filmed setting of Robert Lamb's orchestral composition 'Dublin City Suite' directed by RTÉ cameraman Godfrey Graham. It featured the life of Dublin from morning until evening set to Lamb's music; some actors also participated. 'Dublin Suite' was first broadcast on RTÉ Television on 27 October 1986; the RTÉ Guide published a brief preview on 24 October 1986.
