Just saw this and thought it worth posting. Different times..

The blurb…

My dad and his friend filmed themselves driving around Dublin city centre in 1974. They drove down Grafton Street and up by Dame Street by the central bank (still being built) then down past Trinity College and up to the top of O’Connell street. Check out the flares and 1970s cars

Posted earlier in the year.. Driving through Dublin circa 1982

This is fantastic IELB. Great find and fair dues to the person who posted it up originally.

Wonderful stuff. The flares and the lads walking on the road make it look like a deleted scene from Taxi Driver.
