15 Ardmore Avenue, D7
€395k Quillsen Glasnevin (01) 850 0900
'The Story of the Typewriter' was a one-reel documentary about the invention of the typing machine. It was released in 1911. One young woman participating in the innovation was 19-year-old Catherine Buckley, who lived at 15 Ardmore Avenue, and gave her occupation in the 1911 census as "shorthand writer and typist". The red-brick terrace has since been extended to 1,195 sq ft with three first-floor bedrooms. The ground floor has two reception rooms, a breakfast room and kitchen. The attic has been converted.
