Clerys Department Store – Historic Dublin Art Print by Mark Tisdale.
This historic Dublin art print features Clerys Department Store, once a Dublin landmark. Clerys Department Store opened in 1853. When I visited Dublin it was still open but it after more than a century in business it closed in 2015. This Dublin street scene is based on photos I took on one of my last mornings in Dublin. The sunshine was streaming down O’Connell Street picking out all the details on the historic architecture that Dublin’s north side is well known for.
The landmark Clerys Department store building dates from 1922. The original was destroyed in the Easter Rising of 1916. The clock you can see over the main doors was long a meeting point. In the days before mobile phones and the like, people would arrange to meet under Clerys Clock. The building of course remains and is being redeveloped but the history of Clerys Department store has closed. I’m glad I had a chance to shop there even if I only got a pair of gloves. Ha!
