From the "Abbey Theatre, 1904: digitally reconstructing Dublin's original Abbey Theatre" (blog.oldabbeytheatre.net/) and "Lost-Theatres.net: researching past places of performance" (lost-theatres.net/) projects, this animation by Niall Ó hOisín (noho.ie/) colour codes the model of the Old Abbey Theatre to indicate which areas for which we have solid evidence (green), or partial evidence (yellow), and where we have introduced hypothetical elements (red).
In this case, we could not ascertain from architectural plans or historical photos whether there was any rake to the stage, or precisely how the front of the stage was decorated. Lights affixed to the left-hand side of gallery as we face the stage can reasonably be assumed to have symmetrically mirrored those on the other side of the gallery, but we have no photographic evidence that actually proves this. Finally, the human figures in red are provided to give an indication of scale.
