intrusion-source: 9TL4

He slid it into the left slot for them. It shot down the groove, wobbled a while, ceased, ogling them: six.

this already intruded for miss dunne: "The disk shot down the groove, wobbled a while, ceased and ogled them: six."
if it's properly synchronised, miss dunne should be daydreaming as she types the date on a gaudy notecard. the timing of the phonecall will be explored below.

now a pseudo-intrusion, 9TL6:

Lawyers of the past, haughty, pleading, beheld pass from the consolidated taxing office to Nisi Prius court Richie Goulding carrying the costbag of Goulding, Collis and Ward and heard rustling from the admiralty division of King's bench to the court of appeal an elderly female with false teeth smiling incredulously and a black silk skirt of great amplitude.

this will be elaborated in Bloom's section 10 and in section 19: "An elderly female, no more young, left the building of the courts of chancery, king's bench, exchequer and common pleas, having heard in the lord chancellor's court the case in lunacy of Potterton, in the admiralty division the summons, exparte motion, of the owners of the Lady Cairns versus the owners of the barque Mona, in the court of appeal reservation of judgment in the case of Harvey versus the Ocean Accident and Guarantee Corporation." and also section 19 at 3:33: "In the porch of Four Courts Richie Goulding with the costsbag of Goulding, Collis and Ward saw him with surprise. Past Richmond bridge at the doorstep of the office of Reuben J. Dodd, solicitor, agent for the Patriotic Insurance Company, an elderly female about to enter changed her plan and retracing her steps by King's windows smiled credulously on the representative of His Majesty."

intrusion from 1/2 mile northwest

so the "elderly female" is "rustling" from courtroom to courtroom, probably just passing the time? and before she intrudes on Bloom she'll sit thru the "reservation of judgment"

"costbag" and "costsbag"are joycean variants on 'cost drawer' implying some kind of bookkeeping briefcase

— See? he said. See now the last one I put in is over here: Turns Over. The impact. Leverage, see?

He showed them the rising column of disks on the right.

— Smart idea, Nosey Flynn said, snuffling. So a fellow coming in late can see what turn is on and what turns are over.

— See? Tom Rochford said.

He slid in a disk for himself: and watched it shoot, wobble, ogle, stop: four. Turn Now On.

— I'll see him now in the Ormond, Lenehan said, and sound him. One good turn deserves another.

Rochford hopes Boylan will promote or invest in his invention

"turn" is Lenehan's pun

since Eolus our only glimpse of Lenehan was his visit with miss Dunne, maybe minutes ago across the street?

— Do, Tom Rochford said. Tell him I'm Boylan with impatience.

— Goodnight, M'Coy said abruptly, when you two begin...

which two, begin what?

Nosey Flynn stooped towards the lever, snuffling at it.

— But how does it work here, Tommy? he asked.

— Tooraloo, Lenehan said. See you later.

He followed M'Coy out across the tiny square of Crampton court.

they may be coming out the ?side of the Empire Theatre, later renamed the Olympia

— He's a hero, he said simply.

— I know, M'Coy said. The drain, you mean.

— Drain? Lenehan said. It was down a manhole.

They passed Dan Lowry's musichall where Marie Kendall, charming soubrette, smiled on them from a poster a dauby smile.

streetview now

from Crampton to Sycamore they'd have Dan Lowrey's Empire Palace Theatre on their left the whole way. the poster most logically would be on the Dame street side, possibly the same one Miss Dunnecan see from her desk

to get to Sycamore they'd swing around Dame street, very close to where Martin Cunningham will pass a half hour later

Going down the path of Sycamore street beside the Empire musichall Lenehan showed M'Coy how the whole thing was. One of those manholes like a bloody gaspipe and there was the poor devil stuck down in it, half choked with sewer gas. Down went Tom Rochford anyhow, booky's vest and all, with the rope round him. And be damned but he got the rope round the poor devil and the two were hauled up.

streetview now

— The act of a hero, he said.

At the Dolphin they halted to allow the ambulance car to gallop past them for Jervis street.

(any clues who it's for?)
