Before Nelson's pillar trams slowed, shunted, changed trolley, started for Blackrock, Kingstown and Dalkey, Clonskea, Rathgar and Terenure, Palmerston Park and upper Rathmines, Sandymount Green, Rathmines, Ringsend and Sandymount Tower, Harold's Cross. The hoarse Dublin United Tramway Company's timekeeper bawled them off:

(these are geographically just the 4:00-7:00, SE-SW routes, all others are ignored)

pillar-to-Dalkey = 8 miles

"timekeeper" = trams followed a schedule [eg] [jpegs]

— Rathgar and Terenure!

— Come on, Sandymount Green!

Right and left parallel clanging ringing a doubledecker and a singledeck moved from their railheads, swerved to the down line, glided parallel.

— Start, Palmerston Park!


Under the porch of the general post office shoeblacks called and polished. 

(where is "under the porch"?)

Parked in North Prince's street His Majesty's vermilion mailcars, bearing on their sides the royal initials, E.R., received loudly flung sacks of letters, postcards, lettercards, parcels, insured and paid, for local, provincial, British and overseas delivery.

"North Prince's street" is a one-block dead-end alley

c1910 (GR = George V, 1910-1936)
"vermillion" = shade of red made from worms (red is the episode's color)
"E.R." = Edward Rex (Edward VII, the eponymous crown-wearer)

"Prince's Stores" was a pub at #3

(the draymen are hardly gentlemen of the press, are they?)

The Freeman's Journal was nextdoor at 4-8 Prince's street, continuous with the Evening Telegraph offices at 83 Middle Abbey street. Thom's was nextdoor on the Abbey side, and the Oval across the street:

— There it is, Red Murray said. Alexander Keyes.

John 'Red' Murray was JAJ's unloved 48yo uncle, doubled elsewhere as John Goulding "the cornet player" (p39)

58yo in 1911?
Joyce's camera has panned across the outdoor streetscene (like a ghostly pedestrian) and now zooms in on the newspaperoffice interior
