The Pavilion at Kingstown (Dun Laoghaire) Then and Later

scan0066If memory serves, the Pavilion at Kingstown was built in anticipation of a visit from Queen Victoria.  It was obviously constructed of mostly wood, and I don’t know what happened to it…whether it was torn down for something more modern or something else transpired.  I think at least one of the structures may have burned down.  The photo above is at least as old as 1911, maybe even older.  The photo below shows The Pavilion much later, probably the 1940’s or early 1950’s as there is a postmark of 1952 on the reverse side.  Today there is yet another Pavilion which houses shops and restuarants and is much larger than the 1950’s version.
