1930's Dublin street scene, O'Connell Bridge & Eden Quay
The Guinness barges ferried beer barrels from St. James's Gate brewery to Victoria Quay where Guinness ships docked. Up until the late 1950's the barges were used extensively on Ireland's waterways to transport Guinness barrels. Their funnels were hinged, enabling them to be lowered when travelling under Liffey river bridges at high tides.
