St Anne's: The Story of a Guinness Estate by Joan Ussher Sharkey

£40.00

Product description

St Anne's: The Story of a Guinness Estate by Joan Ussher Sharkey

The success of the famous brewery in Dublin provided an income for Benjamin Lee Guinness to purchase a house in Clontarf in 1835. Through lavish spending over the years on both building a new house, and acquiring surrounding lands, the estate of St. Anne's was created from the original house called Thornhill. This book details for the first time, the various land purchases by both Benjamin Lee and his son, Arthur Edward (Lord Ardilaun), when St. Anne's became the scene for glistening balls and garden parties. The later development of the estate by Dublin Corporation is explored when the parkland and tree lined avenues were retained as a public park. The central nursery of the Parks and Landscape Division is located in one of the former walled gardens, and with the creation of the Rose Garden, a link is maintained with the historic past of St. Anne's. The many illustrations include those of the palatial mansion and world famous gardens which give a glimpse into the now vanished world of this former demesne.

In good condition. Cover shows wear but pages are clean. Includes Dublin City Council's map of St Anne's Park.
