Irish Exhibition Postcard

This photo is from a postcard of the Irish International Exhibition in Dublin, 1907.  The Exhibition was a 6 month long World's Fair which showcased all the regions under the British empire during that time.  Music, art and industry were celebrated.

The photo is a view of the Industrial section.  The displays on the left side are part of the "Irish Lace Court."  On the right side, you can see on the little bump-out it says "Crotchets" above the window.  Unfortunately we cannot see any of the items in the "Crotchets" section!  

More information about the Exhibition HERE

I'd give anything to walk around here for a day!
