This is a rare separately issued map of Dublin, Ireland as it was at the end of what can be considered a rather prosperous century for the nation's capital and largest city. As noted in the map, it was published by William Faden, Geographer to the King and sold by W. Allen & J. Archer, Dublin.
Full title : Plan of the City of Dublin Surveyed for Use of the Division of Justices, to Which have been Added Plans of the Canal Harbor and its Junction with the Grand Canal; The Royal Canal and every Projection and Alteration of the Present Time.
The map centers on the River Liffey, or what is more commonly referred today as Temple Bar. The plan presents the city divided into six wards, Barrack, Capel Street, Rotunde, Stephen's Green, Castle, and Work-house ward, with the "Earl of Meath's Liberty outlined in Green. During the 18th century, otherwise known as the Georgian Period, Dublin experienced decades of steady growth and improvements and for a time, Dublin was the second largest city of the British Empire and the fifth largest city in Europe, with the population exceeding 130,000. The vast majority of Dublin's most notable architecture shown in this map dates from the Georgian Period.
Historical buildings and landmarks found throughout the map include...
- Trinity College: Founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth I as "the mother of a university."
- St. Stephen's Green: Established in the 17th century but restricted to local residents until 1877.
- Dublin Castle: Originally founded as a major defensive work on the orders of King John of England in 1204, completed in 1230.
- St. Patrick's Cathedral: Founded in 1191 as the National Cathedral of the Church of Ireland.
- Guinness Brewery: Though not specifically labeled, a small building on a large plot of land on the corner Ransford st. and Belview Crane St. marks the location of the St. James Gate Brewery founded forty years prior to the publication of this map (in 1759) when Arthur Guinness signed a 9,000 year lease at 45 pounds / year. The Brewery would eventually expand from 1 acre to over 64 acres, becoming the largest brewery in the world and the largest employer in Dublin.
Today the city is at the forefront of Ireland's economic expansion and as of late has boasted very low unemployment rate as it attracts visitors from around the world to enjoy its historical streets, architecture, landmarks, Celtic cultural, and of course a pint of Guinness.
