|A Henrietta Street tenement house|
The hosts are Dublin City Council and the Tenement Museum Dublin, and the seminar is an opportunity to present some of the historical research generated as part of the development of the Museum, which opened this summer at no 14 Henrietta Street.
The research sets out to answer some key questions that this unique street prompts. It examines the architecture of the 15 individual houses and explores the street's first residents who moved into them back in the mid-18th century, It also explores the reasons these houses became home to more than 800 people by 1911; what tenement life was like during the mid-20th century; and what happened to the tenants after they left the street.
Tickets need to be booked for this free event, which is part of the Dublin Festival of History programme.
