Teatime Talk: ‘Uncovering traces of Dublin’s past through old and fading signs’

When: Wednesday 7 April at 7pm

Where: Online via Zoom

Have you ever walked down a street in Dublin and noticed that a shop had disappeared seemingly overnight and another one opened up in its place?

This free online talk will unravel some of the stories of Dublin's past and present by looking up at its old signs, looking down at its forgotten doorway thresholds and exploring some of its secret corners. This visual exploration of Dublin’s old signs will look past modern-day signs and shopfronts to peel back the layers of history on our streets.

Emma Clarke runs the project ‘Dublin Ghost Signs’. She has been documenting old signs & tracking Dublin’s changing streetscapes for almost as long as she has been living in Dublin.
