River and class

Incidental but interesting paragraph from the Irish Times weekly published in May 1916 and reproduced in today's paper --

The revolution having ended, the streets in the central parts of the city on Monday became comparatively safe during daylight, the citizens displayed great anxiety to see for themselves some of the damage that had been done. Residents outside the military cordon on the North side of the city were rigorously excluded from passing through, and on the South side, a similar restriction, though not quite so strict, was in force.
