THESE PHOTOS SHOW the marquee of the old Ambassador cinema at the top of O’Connell Street, between 1979 and 1983.
Each sign was hand-painted by signwriter Kevin Freeney, who worked in and around Dublin for decades before his death in 1986.
We (Kevin’s family) do sometimes come across his work that we had not known about, but as time goes on and Dublin changes it happens less and less.
Paul now works as a photographer himself, specialising in capturing moments of street life in and around Dublin. His work can be seen on Flickr here.
