The GPO Reopens 1929

#OnThisDay 1929 The refurbished GPO reopens its doors thirteen years after it had been gutted during the Easter Rising, when it served as the Volunteers’ HQ. The building, much of Dublin’s inner city centre had been shelled by British artillery and the gunship, Helga during the week, bringing much ruin and devastation to the streets.
