Finnegans Wake and Dublin city's hinterland

For Joyce enthusiasts these photos and quotations may offer the slenderest of aids for Finnegans Wake . The 1938 Ordnance Survey Map of Dublin may be of interest to enthusiasts of both Finnegans Wake and Ulysses - the names and locations remain much the same as in Joyce's time. The site, JoyceImages.com, is also an excellent visual accompaniment for reading Ulysses.

For those unfamiliar with Joyce's work, Portrait of the Artist, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake are available for reading online.
