Henry Street in Dublin, Ireland, picured with the ruins left after the 1916 Rising, mixed with the modern street scene of today, and oblivious shoppers and pedestrians on a Saturday afternoon. This was a Rebellion of Irish Patriots against British rule. The rebellion failed, and most of the rebel leaders were executed by the Brirish.
The stone pillar in the old photo was called Nelson's Pillar, and was blown up by the IRA (Which was officially an Illegal Organisation in the Irish State after independence) on 8 March 1966, to commerate the Rebellion.
