A Gorgeous Look At Dublin In 1965

Screen-Shot-2014-08-26-at-09.15.59

We love sharing the latest news about Dublin here including recipes, gigs and events in the capital. We think Dublin is fast becoming one of the best cities in Europe if not in the entire world. Having said that it is important to remember where we have come from and how the city has grown which is why we bring you this iconic video we spotted dating all the way back to 1965.

It shows a car driving around the streets of Dublin and what blew us away most was just how similar everything looked. You could even say some of the older shops and bars look like the modern day hipster versions that we see today. You'll also notice in the video that the traffic is driving the wrong way up Christchurch and that people seemed to drive way slower back then and pedestrians just seemed to walk down the middle of the road! Also no sign of the clampers with cars happily parked along the side of every main road.

Things seemed a lot simpler back then in Dublin city centre. We want a time machine to take us back there!
