This is a fantastic Lawrence image of the O'Connell Monument, on what was then Sackville Street in Dublin. But what's fascinating is the excision of the two characters who were obviously taking their ease on the steps of the plinth...
Wanted to date this accurately, and was hoping that the shops on the left (Elvery's Elephant, etc.) would help us to do that. The monument was unveiled in 1882. From staining on the steps, it looks as if it'd been in situ for a while. I started the bidding at 1885, but see below comments for a tour de force example of dating detective work, especially from MKSeery.

(Explore) I have been reading the reports on global warming at the IPCC, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. As a business school professor, I am particularly interested in how human communities, economies, and businesses will adapt to the challenges of the future. I have been studying the polar region and Greenland in particular because I think these places are the most affected right now--by studying how communities and economies in this region adapt, perhaps there can be lessons for all of us.
Once one gets over the shocking facts in the report--for example, there is now at least one model of ice melt that has the north pole free of ice, all year, by 2013--the interesting tone of the report is that adaptation will be highly localized. And indeed at my conference, where we had a number of environmentalists, the message was the same: While climate change is global, its effects and solutions will be highly localized. Right now we see a lot of "top-down" activity--Kyoto accord, Walmart's positive efforts--but in the future the resilience of our society will be based on local creativity and political courage.

A generation which has passed through the shop has absorbed standards and ambitions which are not of those of spaciousness, and cannot get away from them. Everything with them is done as though for sale, and they naturally have in view the greatest possible benefit, profit and that end of the stuff that will make the best show.
The morality of compromise' sounds contradictory. Compromise is usually a sign of weakness, or an admission of defeat. Strong men don't compromise, it is said, and principles should never be compromised. I shall argue that strong men, conversely, know when to compromise and that all principles can be compromised to serve a greater principle.
If you can't pay for a thing, don't buy it. If you can't get paid for it, don't sell it. Do this, and you will have calm and drowsy nights, with all of the good business you have now and none of the bad. If you have time, don't wait for time.
So much for industry, my friends, and attention to one's own business; but to these we must add frugality if we would make our industry more certainly successful. A man may, if he knows not how to save as he gets, keep his nose all his life to the grindstone, and die not worth a grout at last.
Women do not win formula one races, because they simply are not strong enough to resist the G-forces. In the boardroom, it is different. I believe women are better able to marshal their thoughts than men and because they are less egotistical they make fewer assumptions.
The right merchant is one who has the just average of faculties we call common sense; a man of a strong affinity for facts, who makes up his decision on what he has seen. He is thoroughly persuaded of the truths of arithmetic. There is always a reason, in the man, for his good or bad fortune in making money. Men talk as if there were some magic about this. He knows that all goes on the old road, pound for pound, cent for cent -- for every effect a perfect cause -- and that good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose.
