In December 1892, the City Fruit and Vegetable Market formally opened its doors to Dubliners. Now, as the distinctive red and yellow brick building awaits a new lease of life, this audio tour will trace its inception, design and building through the closing decades of the nineteenth century. From site selection to opening ceremony, Dublin brick to Bristol-made iron, discover how this unique building tells the story of Victorian Dublin. 

About: Kathryn Milligan is an art historian specialising in nineteenth and twentieth century Irish art. Her first book, Painting Dublin, 1886 - 1949: Visualising a changing city, will be published in December 2020.
