This is simple, but rather lovely.

As the world's media became transfixed by the amazing feat of man first landing on the moon in 1969, Irish media were clearly taking a far more blasé tone towards the whole thing.

This photo, published today on the wonderful Photos of Dublin Twitter account, shows a newspaper seller from around the time – and the display headline on the sign beside him is just perfect.

Are ye well, lads?

Cos ye're looking well.
