Dublin tenement now a museum

This item appears on page 60 of the January 2019 issue.

Originally built as a single-family house for an upper-class Dubliner in the early 18th century, the building at 14 Henrietta Street (14 Henrietta St., Inns Quay, Dublin 1, 001 HH34 Ireland; www.14henriettastreet.ie) had become a workers' tenement housing at least 100 people by 1911. Now a museum, opened on Sept. 18, 2018, the building's restored rooms display its entire history, from wealthy town home to courthouse to army barracks to tenement.
