Queen Victoria visits Dublin 22nd June, 1897
Must say the two Dolls presenting flowers look quite fetching...
Was that Lizzie's visit to the English Market in Cork in 2011? It was hard to see 'Her Maj' through the waving sea of Butchers Aprons and cap throwing from the 'rebel' county that day.
Ireland back then was more multi cultural than it was a short 25 years later.
You call it a kind of mass hysteria or celeb watching. I call it profound ignorance.Ireland back then was more multi cultural than it was a short 25 years later.
There was a vibrant community of people in Dublin who identified with Victoria as being part of their cultural space.
