The City of Dublin Brewery - An early illustrated brewery advertisement

Another short post just to show this nice illustrated newspaper advertisement for The City of Dublin Brewery from 1870. It features a stylised entrance archway and presumably the brewery in the background. It's hardly a photograph or proper illustration of the property but it's still a nice image, showing a man leading a dray with barrels out of the entrance and signs on the pillars advertising XX Extra Stout and X Stout. The quality isn't great, as it's from a newspaper, but I've enlarged, enhanced and sharpened it as much as I could - I'm just happy to have found it as I haven't seen it elsewhere ...
