John Cash and Robert Pool were both architectural draughtsmen and had both been students at the Dublin Society’s School of Drawing in Architecture. They presented the drawings for this work to the Society which gave its support to the book. In 1780 ‘Views of the Most Remarkable Public Buildings, Monuments and Other Edifices in the City of Dublin’ was published which along with the plates included this folding plan of Dublin. It was engraved by John Lodge (fl.1755-96) of London who had previously worked for the ‘Gentleman’s Magazine’. A note lower left states that the ‘River and shaded lines separate the Wards’.
