FW 1.15d --other instruments and players--

1.15a: Then as she is on her behaviourite job of quainance bandy, fruting for firstlings and taking her tithe...
1.15b: like so many heegills and collines, sitton aroont, scentbreeched and somepotreek, in their swishawish...
1.15c: We may see and hear nothing if we choose of the shortlegged bergins off Corkhill or the bergamoors...
1.15d: though every crowd has its several tones and every trade has its clever mechanics and each harmonical...
1.15e: But all they are all there scraping along to sneeze out a likelihood that will solve and salve life's robulous...
1.15f: Behove this sound of Irish sense. Really? Here English might be seen. Royally? One sovereign punned...

[last] [fweb-toc] [fweet] [finwake] [theall] [pgs]

lead-in: "We may see and hear nothing if we choose..."

though every crowd has its several tones

nursery rhyme 'As I was going to Saint Ives, I met a man with seven wives, and every wife had seven sacks...'

Pont de Sevres, Paris (bridges of Paris)?

(there's always a choice of "tones", despite which we may choose to hear none of them?)

and every trade has its clever mechanics

German Klavier: piano (musical instruments)

you can choose a clever tradesman, or not?

and each harmonical has a point of its own,

harmonica (musical instruments)
cf?? Bloom's fascination with concerthall acoustics and whispering galleries

crowd/tones, trade/mechanics, harmonical/point

Olaf's on the rise and Ivor's on the lift

the legend that three brothers, Aulaf, Sitric, and Ivar, founded Dublin, Waterford, and Limerick, apparently originated with Giraldus Cambrensis

Olaf/Dublin, Sitric/Waterford, Ivor/Limerick

Olaf Road (easternmost of the 3), Ivar Street (northernmost), and Sitric Road (southeast of Ivar, slightly southwest of Olaf) near Arbour Hill, Dublin

on the right (left/right)

on the left

and Sitric's place's between them.
