Phantastic structure just up the way from us on the corner of Kildare Street at St. Stephen's Green, Dublin. The engraver was Thomas Badge, c. 1782-c.1841.

The excellent National Gallery of Ireland website tells us that in "1798, William Binns, an ironmonger, rebuilt what is now 25 and 26 St. Stephen's Green as a house with a toy and fancy goods shop, at the back of which, in Kildare Street, he erected a tower with 'gazebo' on top. The business ceased in 1816, when the stock and contents of the shop were auctioned. The whole premises, known as the Pantheon Phusitechnikon was later demolished."

According to my trusty copy of Kevin and Emer Rockett's Magic Lantern, Panorama and Moving Picture Shows in Ireland, 1786-1909, the viewing gazebo offered a panoramic view of Dublin, but was removed in 1821.
