Greystones Shops 1922
Since we were examing the new shops in Greystones we decided to visit the library and look for any information on what Greystones looked like in the early 1900s. We found a book called ‘A Guide to Greystones’ printed in 1922.
Here are some of the shops we found. We have found out what some of these building are today.
