Heritage October 21, 2020

Mixed feelings about this report of a Lidl on Aungier Street in Dublin which incorporates glass panels allowing those in the supermarket to see medieval structures beneath it. It is a neat example of how archeology and history can be integrated into everyday life, but it points up the potential of what was lost at Wood Quay in the manner of the construction of the Civic Offices. Perhaps inevitably the rest of the site is given over to student accommodation.

The Lidl on Thomas Street has a blown-up old photograph of local traders from way back when spanning the wall by the tills so you can gaze on wistfully and muse on the effect of big supermarkets on the independent local economy as your items are boop-boop-booped.
