Nope. Joe Elliot won’t be 60 until next year. The band is still huge in the US and has sold more than 100 million albums. Not bizarre, but Hysteria

The Post Office Dublin Directory and Calendar for 1858

What does the l or L refer to on each address? Is it a value of the property or business as in L,S,D,
or pounds, shillings & pence?

It's impossible not to notice there are 5 comb manufacturers between numbers 48 and 55 of this street, which is Pill Lane. I'd be curious to know when was the last year a comb manufacturer existed as a business, given that it was such a thriving business, 5 existed on the one street.

Definitely pounds, its the rateable valuation; Thoms (that is what that directory became) continued that until very late in its printing history, even beyond the death of domestic rates.

I've skim-read an entire Thoms Street Directory (1986), most of another (1965) and far too much of one of the full Commercial Directories (1943) in my non-genealogical research. Could recognise that layout anywhere!

I actually use the valuation as a way to pick out a possible pub from a street, they were always valued much higher.

My partner mentioned she saw something on Twitter about 3 having technical issues yesterday.
I wonder would that explain it?

I too have been using three so that could be it. It would explain why it wasnt working on my phone (whilst using 3 data) and on my laptop (while using 3 wifi)!!

Future Learn do a free course: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/...#section-dates

It started on 21st January but you can join now. I did it since it's free and there's nothing to lose. I'm not sure if I learned a whole pile from it but it's probably good for beginners since it is teaching the basics. There are certain things that I may refer back to in the future. It has probably been updated since I did it. The course lasts six weeks. It gives a description of topics covered on the website.
