Following the bombing, Dublin City Council (then called the Corporation) commissioned photographs of the destruction caused, for use as evidence for the assessment of insurance claims.

The photography was entrusted to a local photographer, H. McCrae, of 152 Clontarf Road, who began work on 4th June and continued until the end of the month. Further photographs were taken in July and September, and the final photographs were taken on 31st October.

The original photographs measure 28cm (width) x 20cm (height), and the total cost was £79-10s-0d.

The originals of the 57 photographs in the North Strand Bombing Photographic Collection are housed in the Dublin City Library and Archive.
