Howth Head from Kingstown
Panoramic view of Howth Head from Kingstown now Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin, Ireland, showing also the East Pier and the East Pier Battery with lighthouse and anemometer (one of the world first wind-speed measuring devices built in 1852). The pier itself looks unfinished. The harbour building commenced in 1817 and by 1821 the East and West piers were completed, but work of reinforcing the East Pier continued for at least another 30 years. Sailing boats sail in and out of the harbour and there is a paddle wheel steamer to the right of the drawing, probably on its way to England.
