Perhaps the oldest surviving shop in Dublin is that of Thomas Read & Sons located in Parliament Street. James Read commenced his sword and knife making business on Blind Quay (Lower Exchange Street) in the year 1670 - a busy area at that time. He had a sister - Elizabeth - who was the wife of Richard Guinness.  This became Parliament St.
