- Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
- Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

- Wikipedia Description: Embassy of Ireland, Washington, D.C.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Embassy of Ireland in Washington, D.C. is the diplomatic mission of Ireland to the United States. It is located at 2234 Massachusetts Avenue, Northwest, Washington, D.C., at Sheridan Circle, in the Embassy Row neighborhood.
The embassy also operates Consulates-General in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York City, and San Francisco.
As of January 2019, the current ambassador is Daniel Mulhall.
Also known as the Henrietta M. Halliday House - the building is located on Massachusetts Avenue, in an area known as Embassy Row - named after the large number of embassies and diplomatic missions concentrated in the area.
The plot of land where the building currently stands was previously owned by former Republican Governor of Louisiana William P. Kellogg - who served as governor from 1873 until 1877.
In May 1906, Kellogg sold the land to Henrietta M. Halliday for a total of $12,663. Henrietta subsequently applied and was issued a permit to build a dwelling on the land in 1908. The construction of the building was completed in June 1909.
This semi-detached limestone structure was designed by local Washington D.C. architect William Penn Cresson. The structure itself has two major facades, with each facade facing onto Sheridan Circle and Massachusetts Avenue. The exterior is designed in a Louis XVI Style, while the interior consists of an 18th-century French and English style.
In 1911, the interior was extensively altered by Theodore Davis Boal's architecture firm, Boal & Brown.
Real estate speculator Harry Wardman briefly owned the property from 1926 until it was sold in 1930 during the Great Depression.
The property was purchased by the Government of Ireland in 1949 for $72,000.
- Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to email@example.com
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
- Connection Not Secure messages? Those warnings you get from your browser about this site not having secure connections worry some people. This means this site does not have SSL installed (the link is http:, not https:). That's bad if you're entering credit card numbers, passwords, or other personal information. But this site doesn't collect any personal information so SSL is not necessary. Life's good!
