The Little Museum of Dublin tells the remarkable story of Dublin in the 20th Century. The museum was launched in 2011 with a public appeal for historic objects. The response to that appeal illustrates the generosity of the Irish people: today there are over 5,000 artefacts in the collection. The museum is housed in a beautiful Georgian building, situated right on St. Stephen’s Green.
In early Spring 2014, the museum exhibited a number of Charles Cushman photographs, in association with the University of Indiana, Cushman’s alma mater. An Indiana surveyor, Cushman was an amateur photographer, who came to Dublin in 1961. During his stay, he photographed many of the city’s most iconic sights, including College Green, St Stephen’s Green and Nelson’s Pillar. Shooting only in Kodachrome, he captured a city in transition. Together, his photographs are the best collection of early colour photographs of the city. You can see some of Charles Cushman’s work at the Hospice from Wednesday 6th – Sunday 10th May from 10am-5pm each day.
