Antient Concert Rooms

Moving down Great Brunswick (now Pearse) Street, the funeral cortège passes by the "Antient concert rooms" and Bloom thinks, "Nothing on there." This private hall, home of the Society of Antient Concerts since the 1840s, hosted an impressive number of concerts and other entertainment events.
