Beautiful antique color steel engraving of the city of Dublin by French engravers Émile and Adolphe Rouargue after a drawing by the Irish artist and archaeologist George Petrie R.H.A. for “Ireland Illustrated” (London: 1829-1832). It is inscribed below the image as follows:
Rouargue del & sc. DUBLIN
It depicts a keeper's lodge in the center, the Wellington Monument on the left hilltop, the river Liffey and Sarah's Arch bridge on the right and the roofs, spires, towers and domes of Dublin in the distance. Both the Wellington Monument and Sarah's Arch (renamed Island Bridge after the Free State independence from Britain) were novelties at the time this image was first drawn.
