Dublin : through space and time, c. 900-1900( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first of a mini-series on the development of Dublin from the earliest times. From both geographical and historical perspectives, it tries to unravel and explain the many processes that have interacted to produce the city as we know it today." "Dublin through space and time sets the scene for later books. It begins with the early city, piecing together research from geography (especially evidence from maps, the quintessential geographical tool), archaeology and history. As the architecture of the period shows so vividly, Dublin flowered in the eighteenth century; the following sections look at how this was achieved and by whom; much information is analysed and mapped for the first time and a wealth of fascinating detail is revealed. The nineteenth century was a tale of two cities: the better off moved to suburbs beyond the canals, leaving social problems behind in the inner city." "It was not all gloom. For the better off, Dublin was a bright and vibrant city. The final two sections of the book offer a reconstruction of Dublin at the beginning of the twentieth century, looking at how it might have been seen and experienced by the people of the day." "The book is lavishly illustrated with maps, diagrams and photographs."--Jacket
Dublin, 1930-1950 : the emergence of the modern city by Joseph Brady( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1930s and 1940s, Dublin took on the characteristics of today's city. Decisions taken about the location of large-scale social housing programmes, a lack of reform of urban governance and mixed messages in relation to urban planning combined to produce the social patterns of the city that are recognizable today. The city began to deal with the motor car as a friend to be accommodated with some interesting and long-term results. These and other issues are explored in this latest volume in the 'Making of Dublin' series. The volume aims to convey a sense of what it was like to live in and to use the city during these two decades. Particular attention is devoted to looking at the impact of the Emergency and on how the city functioned, particularly as a shopping centre and tourism centre
Dublin in the 1950s and 1960s : cars, shops and suburbs by Joseph Brady( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the relative gloom of the 1950s, there was a rapid economic pick-up in the early 1960s. Car ownership increased as standards of living improved and Dublin, in common with other European cities, engaged in much soul-searching about what kind of city was needed for a car-owning population and whether this differed from the kind of city that people wanted. Cars offered greater accessibility and this, combined with changes in the nature of industry and especially in the nature of retailing, profoundly altered the relationship between Dubliners and the city centre. A move to self-service and larger and larger scale retail units (especially in food retailing) prompted the move to suburban locations; industry too found benefits in being able to have large-scale, low-rise operations on greenfield sites. The city centre had to redefine its role but it had a boom in service employment in the 1960s, which demanded purpose-built office accommodation. The preferred location for this commercial activity was the south-eastern sector, where the Georgian landscape was best preserved. The nature, scale and speed of change demanded a robust approach to planning and this was the period in which Dublin eventually got its first statutory town plan. These issues are explored in this, the seventh volume in The Making of Dublin City series."--
Dublin, 1950-1970 : houses, flats and high rise by Joseph Brady( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dublin continued to expand its footprint during the 1950s and quickly spilled over into the county area. This was also the period when home ownership became much more common in the private market and the scale of house building, largely in the southern suburbs, reflected a growing city and a more confident economy. Builders sought to construct estates but without an "estate look" and turned to the US for inspiration. Up to the 1960s, flats were largely a phenomenon of the inner city and were mainly build by Dublin Corporation. A private-sector market in flats began to emerge in the late 1950s but growth was slow with imagination often lacking in developments, which were mostly located on the southside. The big housing experiment of the period was with system building and high-rise on the periphery of the city in Ballymun and, for a time, it seemed as this approach would come to dominate future provision in both public and private sectors. These and other issues are explored in this latest volume in 'The Making of Dublin City' series which, as usual, is enhanced by a significant number of illustrations
