Bloom has purchased the roller blind in his bedroom window from "Frank O'Hara, window blind, curtain pole and revolving shutter manufacturer, 16 Aungier street."
Aungier Street lies in the south part of the inner city, about a quarter of a mile west of St. Stephen's Green. A major thoroughfare, it was the first planned street in post-medieval Dublin. Francis Aungier laid it out in 1661, about a decade before the construction of St. Stephen's Green.
Plans are currently underway to revitalize this important old street, which has fallen a long way from its 17th and 18th century splendor.
