Obviously a gate post swivelled in this but when and where?

The cliffs are so vertical here you would wonder did they quarry the rock for the building of the Martello Tower?

I never noticed this before in all the times I was down there, the layers of marble between the sheets of granite.

Some pictures of Sandycove Baths taken in 1942 that I found at home.
My mother would have been on holiday in Dun Laoghaire at the time.
Photos aren't great as they were tiny (matchbox sized).

Sorry Strum, tried to answer this a week ago or more but for some reason I only stay logged in for a few minutes and when I submit a reply I,m told to log in again and I have to rewrite my post. My solution to this (what I,m doing now) is to bring up a second page and when I,ve written my piece, log in on the other page and then fairly quickly, submit my message. Anyway the programme is called "Presto! Mr Photo 4" and a steady hand is needed to edit photos with it. When I have even a halfarsed idea what I,m at, I,ll put up one or two of my feeble attempts. :)

I was just reading that James Joyce never lived in the Martello Tower at all. The resident at the time (1904) was Oliver St John Gogarty who invited Joyce to stay.
He was there for six days before being forced out on the last night by Gogarty who began firing a Pistol over Joyce's head in the middle of the night and Joyce fled.
Wonder what was about eh haha? :D
So why is the Tower attributed to Joyce???
