Congratulations on some amazing photographs. The architecture is especially stunning… no wonder also that they especially imported limestone from Bath when building the City Hall in my hometown, Cape Town! Hope you’re having a great time in Ireland…
I heard about the Cape Town city hall, which seems amazing considering it doesn’t last all that long. I guess S. Africa has the right conditions. I read a book (Deyan Sudjic, The Edifice Complex: How the Rich and Powerful—and Their Architects—Shape the World, London: Penguin Books, 2005) recently that questioned the claim though–mentioned something like “Cape Town’s city hall is supposedly built of Bath stone.” Either way, if it wasn’t local stone I’m sure it cost the city something.
