'People on the Pier' photographs were beamed onto the Lexicon Library earlier this month to launch the public contributed project.

#PeopleOnPier - Due to popular demand DLR Libraries “People on the Pier” exhibition has been extended giving the public the opportunity to view the free photographic indoor event.

Afloat had reported of the exhibition launched earlier this month which involved an open-air display of peoples photos beamed onto the outside of the Lexicon Library. These publically contributed images formed the current indoor exhibition on display in the iconic building.

In total the collection of 400 candid photos were taken over the years of families and friends enjoying the pier, which were submitted as part of the 2017 commemorations for the bicentenary of Dun Laoghaire Harbour. 

The display in the Lexicon Library's Lab will also serve the purpose of keeping the dlr Libraries’ Local Studies Collection current. The exhibition continues this week but is only to remain running until 5pm this Saturday 16 December.

Today, this Thursday up to 8 pm

Fri / Sat – 9.30 am – 5 pm

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
