Dublin on a sunny summers morning has a charm all it's own and this snapshot of Lower O'Connell Street has charm in spades. So many memories for Dubliners in particular and Irish people in general with "Lemons Pure Sweets, The Irish Press and the Oval Bar in the background provide a stroll down memory lane! The cars and that ESB van should help to date the shot?

    All buildings still there except for Cafollas. Early 70's would be my guess. 5 O'Connell Street Lower maps.app.goo.gl/XeRv9uKUwhx8644RA

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia Second Twitter photo is also a 70s shot. Peugeot 504 saloon Cortina Mk 2 estate and Audi 100. Also of note is the lorry in the background with rolls of paper no doubt for The Irish Press Printing works.

    Parking meters mean post 1968. All those Dublin street scenes are probably contemporary

    “Pineapple rock, lemon platt, butter scotch. A sugarsticky girl shovelling scoopfuls of creams for a christian brother. Some school treat. Bad for their tummies. Lozenge and comfit manufacturer to His Majesty the King. God. Save. Our. Sitting on his throne sucking red jujubes white. A sombre Y.M.C.A. young man, watchful among the warm sweet fumes of Graham Lemon‘s, placed a throwaway in a hand of Mr Bloom.” Ulysses

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Could be newsprint on back of lorry, but their printing presses were across the Liffey on Burgh Quay This was the Press public office where you could place a small ad, order a copy of a photo or enter one of their many competitions, such as 'spot the ball', if anyone remembers what that was. https://www.flickr.com/photos/neonpictures/169603972/in/photolist-8CZDE9-5URMZ9-wjFe3R-fZgmq What the rolls of newsprint look like, sort of like toilet rolls for a giant.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] I remember Spot the Ball. But from my memory of been in Dublin mid 70s that there was a printing works on a street off O'Connell St on the GPO side. Early afternoon you would see the scooters with the rear box carrier leaving full of Evening Press or Herald to go to street vendors. Perhaps someone could shed some light on this?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] That was the Herald/Indo Currently residing at the end of Talbot St., that's their works in photo out on the Naas Rd. Their premises extended to Abbey St at the front. Old W.M. Murphy, the 'Vulture of Dartry' bought the site for a song from the ruins of 1916.
