Dublin City Ordnance Survey Map 1847
Explore 33 fascinating Ordinance Survey maps covering Dublin at the height of the Great Famine. This large-scale government map, broken up into numerous sheets, displays the locations of all the streets, buildings, gardens, lanes, barracks, hospitals, churches and landmarks throughout the city. You can even see illustrations of the trees in St Steven’s Green.
The rich detail captured by these maps gives you a clear idea of what Dublin looked like in 1847. You can see the contrast between the densely populated working class areas and the spacious wealthy homes of the upper classes. Many the buildings recorded by the map have either changed purpose or have been demolished completely over the last 100 years. For example, the Royal Dublin Society House is now Leinster House, the seat of Oireachtas Eireann.
