The Coombe area being the first with which the Corporation of Dublin proceeded to deal under the Artizans' and Labourers' Dwellings Improvement Acts, 38 & 39 Vic. cap. 36 (1875), and 40 & 41 Vic. cap. 122, Local (1877); it has occurred to me that it would be
interesting to give a sketch of the entire proceeding from the beginning, summarising its cost, observing on its details, noting its effect from a sanitary point of view, and submitting for consideration whether or not the public should regard it as a satisfactory speculation. I shall commence with Dr. Mapother's report of the 10th June, 1876, respecting the unhealthiness of this district.
