The nave, looking east, in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, which was restored, indeed practically rebuilt, by George Edmund Street, 1871-78. Entrance to the chancel, with bronze gates by Thomas Potter & Sons. 1860.

Street had wanted this entrance to be a "climax" to the view up the nave, and it surely was. The gates are magnificent.
