This dusk sky greeting card features a beautiful Dublin Ireland Cityscape. There are, of course, a lot of vistas in the city featuring beautiful architecture or landmark buildings. This one features two, actually. The largest building is the 18th century Custom House. It was built in the Neoclassical style in 1791. Even at night, you may notice that the dome is not the same stone as the rest of the building. That wasn't a design decision in the 18th century. During the 20th century quest for Irish independence, the building was bombed and the dome fell. When it was rebuilt by the new Irish government, they chose to use local stone rather than matching stone from the UK.
Slightly further down the river in this Dublin cityscape is Liberty Hall. While by comparison considerably newer it was built in the 1960's. It stands on the site of an earlier Liberty Hall which housed the Irish Transport and General Workers Union. That trade union has since merged with another and Liberty Hall is currently the headquarters for the Services, Industrial, Professional, and Technical Union (SIPTU). Even when I visited more than a decade ago the current building was slated to be demolished and replaced. However SIPTU's plans for a new building were rejected and it seems to be up in the air what will happen next. In my opinion, the current tower is charming even if not the newest or biggest on Dublin's skyline today.
The image on this dusk sky greeting card is based on photos taken from the south side of the River Liffey on my last night in Dublin some years ago. I love the little details like the reflections in the water, the sense of motion both there and on the quay in front of the Custom House where you see not only buses and cars but the light trails of ones that moved through the scene. There's a real sense of the movement and motion of the city as night falls.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
