er001b. Facade of Frank's College in 'northern England.'
er001bn. Trinity is to the right.
The Bank of Ireland (First Great Train Robbery) is across College Green to the left. The tour buses are constant, making it difficult to get a clear shot. (Modern Photo Added: 27-10-2012)
er001c. Rita on the verge of a new life. She hesitates, not out of shyness - or even trepidation at the fact that Dracula author Bram Stoker was educated here...
er001cn. ...but out of fear of being run down by the tourists. The medieval Book of Kells is a huge attraction.
Entrance to Trinity at College Green. The Bank of Ireland is seen through the door. (Modern Photo Added: 27-10-2012)
er001e. Steps to Frank's rooms visible between the two stars
er001en. Frank's chambers, with the distinctive medallion-framed window to the right of the door.
Several sources cite this as the Graduates' Memorial Building. (Modern Photo Added: 27-10-2012)
er002. Rita on her way home discusses 'Howards End' with another student. The Custom House (seen in The Quare Fellow) in centre.
er002n. Sir John Rogerson's Quay, Dublin. Dublin Corporation refused David's request to remove the trees, a nuisance preventing a matching shot! So much for paying taxes on time. (Modern Photo Added: 25-10-2012)
er002a. But where there's a will...
er002an. ...there's a way to accomplish a match! Stitch two together! The Custom House on Custom Quay. Tall building to the left is Liberty Hall.
The banners attached to the rails advertise the 'forthcoming' international tall ships event of last July. (Modern Photo Added: 25-10-2012)
er003a. Home - but not necessarily where the heart is!
er003an. Burlington Road. David says it's the only house with that distinctive garage. (Modern Photo Added: 25-10-2012)
er004. Rita's salon. David still working on this one. There was a Dunn's fishmonger (left through the window) in Smithfield at the time, while the lettering for the existing Mannings bakery chain is different to what's seen here.
er004n. What can't be seen here is the gun (or equally deadly charm) David has trained on Michael and Gretta of Zoom Hair Studio - same name as in 1983 - forcing them into a re-enactment. (Their sense of fun is apparently matched by talent, as internet testaments from happy customers prove). 1, Manor Street, Dublin 7. Tel: (01) 671 0540. (Modern Photo Added: 29-11-2012)
