Cabman's shelter

Shortly after passing by the "hazard" in Lotus Eaters, Bloom passes the accompanying "cabman's shelter" on Great Brunswick Street. In Eumaeus Bloom and Stephen stop for a bite to eat and a cup of coffee at another cabman's shelter "near Butt Bridge," where Beresford Place meets the northern quays. The narrative calls it "an unpretentious wooden structure," which certainly describes the building in Tindall's photograph from the 1950s.
