A huge fire continues to rage this morning on Grafton Street. Last night the premises of Messrs. Anderson, Stanford and Ridgeway at 28-29 Grafton Street was engulfed by flames. The store of carpets, linoleum, blinds, curtains and furniture was entirely destroyed and the fire spread backwards onto South Anne Street and Lemon Street.
Fire brigade units from across Dublin rushed to the scene, but struggled to contain the fire as the roof fell in. There were fears that a nearby motor garage, where there were great quantities of petrol for sale, would go on fire, but fortunately this was avoided.
There are no reports of any fatalities.
Example of item for sale (no longer available) information:
This is a very rare example of an Irish made swivel chair. It was handmade in Dublin pre 1929 by messrs Anderson, Stanford and Ridgeway. They occupied NO 5 Dawson street till the company was dissolved in 1929. They were also commissioned to do the wood carving in Christ Church Bray Co. Wicklow examples of which can still be seen today. This chair is all original may need minor restoration but all in all is an extremely good example of Irish craftsmanship that has stood the test of time.
Additional items shown in the photographs are not for sale - thank you.
