Benson's ferry, and by the threemasted schooner Rosevean from Bridgwater with bricks.

see last lines

this (ridiculously obscure!) section is timed after 3:30 based on characters' progress before being seen by the cavalcade

Almidano Artifoni walked past Holles street, past Sewell's yard. Behind him Cashel Boyle O'Connor Fitzmaurice Tisdall Farrell with stickumbrelladustcoat dangling, shunned the lamp before Mr Law Smith's house and, crossing, walked along Merrion square. Distantly behind him a blind stripling tapped his way by the wall of College Park.

AA was last seen by Goldsmith's statue, missing the Dalkey tram. now he's east of Merrion square, outside TF's chaos

TF was last seen passing the Kildare Street Club after leaving the Library

the stripling was last seen 1-2 hours ago being helped to south Frederick street by Bloom. he's now heading towards the Ormond hotel to tune their piano... but he's heading east not west?

1909 map

Cashel Boyle O'Connor Fitzmaurice Tisdall Farrell walked as far as Mr Lewis Werner's cheerful windows, then turned and strode back along Merrion square, his stickumbrelladustcoat dangling.

52yo in 1911
from Law Smith's to Werner's is almost the full length of Merrion square

the windows may be cheerful but TF is not

At the corner of Wilde's he halted, frowned at Elijah's name announced on the Metropolitan Hall, frowned at the distant pleasance of duke's lawn. His eyeglass flashed frowning in the sun. With ratsteeth bared he muttered:

should be Merrion hall

Coactus volui.

'against my will'
but he doesn't change direction (maybe he wishes he could turn left or right?)

He strode on for Clare street, grinding his fierce word.

"word" not 'wordS'?

vs Conmee strolling with gentle words?

Clare street in 1901 census

As he strode past Mr Bloom's dental windows the sway of his dustcoat brushed rudely from its angle a slender tapping cane and swept onwards, having buffeted a thewless body. The blind stripling turned his sickly face after the striding form.

32yo in 1901

— God's curse on you, he said sourly, whoever you are! You're blinder nor I am, you bitch's bastard!

has something soured the stripling's mood?

(TF will be in almost this same position when the cavalcade passes, but the stripling and Patsy Dignam will have made great progress somehow??? maybe TF remembered something in the Library and went back?)


Opposite Ruggy O'Donohoe's Master Patrick Aloysius Dignam, pawing the pound and half of Mangan's, late Fehrenbach's, porksteaks he had been sent for, went along warm Wicklow street dawdling. It was too blooming dull sitting in the parlour with Mrs Stoer and Mrs Quigley and ma and Mrs MacDowell and the blind down and they all at their sniffles and sipping sups of the superior tawny sherry uncle Barney brought from Tunney's. And they eating crumbs of the cottage fruitcake, jawing the whole blooming time and sighing.

streetview now
?45yo in 1901
18oz = ~6 porkchops, not too heavy to carry in one hand

"Mrs MacDowell" is Gerty's mother (Gerty calls him Patsy)

#6 is 'tawny'
63yo in 1901
has anyone identified "cottage fruitcake"?

After Wicklow lane the window of Madame Doyle, courtdress milliner, stopped him. He stood looking in at the two puckers stripped to their pelts

33 Wicklow street
