Sinn Fein Rebellion 1916
Corner of Sackville Street, Dublin

Onlookers gather to view the incredible scenes of destruction in the very centre of Dublin. (The Rebels had wondered whether the British would actually bomb a British city and destroy property in an attempt to quell the rising...) This shot was taken from O'Connell Bridge looking north.
