During recent days, Dubliners will have been stunned to see the city's quayside buildings apparently floating on water, with the Customs House looking like an image from La Serenissima herself. Dublin City Libraries would very much like to build on its photographic collection with pictures of the Dublin floods, so if you have images you would like to share with us, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. The pictures will be held as part of our collection, so the Dubliners of the future can look back in amazement at the first days of 2014!
Right: The Samuel Beckett Bridge over the River Liffey, approximately one hour after high tide on Friday, 3rd January. Flood waters had receded by that time; they had in fact spilled over onto the quays at various points. Click thumbnail to enlarge.
