Some would probably say Def Leppard are close to playing cemeteries anyway!

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.
