My virtue is that I say what I think, my vice that what I think doesn't amount to much.

Photograph of Leopold Bloom's House

In James Joyce’s Ulysses,  Leopold Bloom, a middle-aged advertising salesman, makes tea and toast for his wife then leaves his fictional home at 7 Eccles St., Dublin to get a kidney for his own breakfast.
In 1950, Harvard archaeology professor, Phil Phillips, photographed Dublin sites mentioned in Joyce’s book including 7 Eccles St.
