Abstract: Part of UCD Library’s Curran Collection, most of these postcards were published in 1916 in the immediate aftermath of the Insurrection. They provide an excellent contemporary pictorial record of the damage to the city; one showing a “before and after” photograph of Sackville (O’Connell) Street. Some are reproductions of “under fire” photos taken by the Daily Sketch photographer and published by Easons. Other series were produced by Hely’s and Coleman’s publishers. The collection contains 37 distinct postcards (as well as duplicates) collected by Constantine Curran.
