Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of Dublin. Charles Barton, who was born in Dublin circa 1847, was practising as an architect from 11 Suffolk Street, Dublin, in 1869(1) and as Barton & Guilfoyle from the same address in 1870.(2) The practice was short-lived. Barton apparently abandoned the idea of architecture as a profession in favour of stockbroking and moved to London.(3)
