Once the Willy Wonka chocolate factory of Dublin,Williams & Woods kept generations of children and adults happy with their large range of confectionary items as advertised in this rare, original print from the late 1890s.The company is long gone but happily the building has been put to good use as you can read below.
William’s & Woods building on King’s Inn Street in Dublin City Centre is where it all began – the first home to the Chocolate Factory shared creative space.
Once manufacturing various sweet treats including Toblerone and Mint Crisp, this industrial building now houses an eclectic mix of small businesses and individuals in creative sectors including art, design, music, photography, craft, up-cycling, dance, illustration, graphics, events, horticulture, baking and small batch food & drink production.
The incredible transformation and re-invention of Dublin’s first concrete building into a creative and collaborative space continues in addition to other alternative Chocolate Factory venues around the country.
