I spotted this building in Grafton St, Dublin and took an instant shine to the polygon shaped tower topped with a flagpole.
I also like the use of brick columns between the windows as a contrast to the white stone used on the rest of the facade.
This website has a great picture of the building from the 1930s and this website reveals a bit more about the building's former life, especially that it was once Nobletts Sweet Shop.
In the recent years the ground floor shop has been a Newsagency and I presume the upper levels have been used as offices.
But I keep getting drawn back to the tower. I wonder how big it is inside and what sort of a view of Dublin it offers.
Lunch special — at Fitzroy Street - St Kilda.
