This is great. I think there was a link to the old photos posted previously but I can't find it

Roll your mouse over the images to see how they look today

50 years is a bit before my time, but my Da was glad to see those. Pity some of the buildings are gone. Look a damn sight better then what we have now.

Love photo's like this - the ciggie adverts replaced for those selling mobile phones - the old buses - the dray horse - and a policemanon point duty...

Looks like my Dads old black Ford parked up in the photo of Grattan Status at College Green.

The photo of O'Connell Bridge shows just how much a tree can grow in 50 years.

Loved looking at those. Reminded me, amongst other things, how ugly modern vehicles are!

Walking round town was a different experience today thanks to this feature.

Dame St looks mad, it makes me think what the fuck some of the planners were thinking in the subsequent years when you see that building on Dame St opposite The Oak.

I saw an elsebound train, on the overpass
In the driving rain, every ticket costs the same
For where you can't go
Mustang horses, champagne glasses
Anything frail anything wild
It's the price of living motion, what's beautiful is broken
And grace is just the measure of a fall.

nice one Alan, have to laugh at the cars going down Grafton St from the side of the Gaiety, cant walk down there now and imagine that ever happened at all. Great music too. Looked a bit more glam then, makes you wish you had a Tardis.

Great photos. Amazing to see the disappearance of pissing rain and priests on bikes in the intervening years.
