That’s a drawing
>Drawing of the last surviving cage-work house in Dublin on the corner of Castle Street and Werburgh Street, demolished around 1812. This building was probably post-medieval in date, but typical of many houses in the medieval city. The illustration is believed to be a good representative image of the building, and was published in the Dublin Penny Journal in 1813. A further illustration based on this was published in the Irish Builder in 1870.
I love it! (It would be great as framed art) thnx
I think there’s still some hybrid timber/brick houses on thomas street, but they look like normal Georgian brick facades on the outside.
The journal.ie did a vid on the interior a few years ago https://youtu.be/dGiUyu_te9k
There were important anglo-norman towns like Fethard that became backwaters by the Georgian period that you’d assume some timber work houses would survive in, but nope, nothing….
It looked great condition, why demolished?
Thanks so much for that answer! Google didn’t help me, and I appreciate the info
