Henrietta Street and You
14 Henrietta Street is dedicated to collecting, documenting, and preserving Dublin City’s 20th century social history. If you have memories of growing up in Dublin’s tenements we would love you to consider sharing those memories with us. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in telling your story, please contact us to arrange an interview.
We are currently developing our Collections Policy and are developing a database of items that date from Dublin’s 19th and 20th century, for example, rent books; ration books; tableware; pictures; photographs; letters; sporting memorabilia; militaria, copy books; religious artefacts; toys; clothes; small decorative items.
If you have heirlooms or hand-me-downs from your family’s life, please email us a photograph and some details of the history you know about the item, along with your contact information and what you know about where your family lived. Sharing these stories is a valuable and real contribution to the development of 14 Henrietta Street and its story.
