Amateur architect. Graham Lemon was a wholesale confectioner in Dublin, with premises at 49 Sackville Street and 140 St Stephen's Green West, and a house called St Edmund's at Clontarf.(1) In 1862 Lemon acquired 29 Grafton Street which he demolished and rebuilt, apparently to his own design. The Dublin Builder commented: 'While we admire the enterprise of Mr Lemon, we certainly must dissent from his architectural 'efforts' - which are seldom attended with success, when the work of an amateur.'(2)
