Fascinating Vintage Photos Of Dublin From the 1960s

Dublin is the capital of Ireland and it has a unique and rich taste in music, art, culture, and literary history. The city was founded by Vikings, who settled in what they called the “Norse Kingdom of Dublin” in the 9th century. Dublin expanded rapidly from the 17th century and was briefly the second largest city in the British Empire before the Acts of Union in 1800. Today Dublin is Europe’s Silicon Valley because all the tech giants have settled their European headquarters in Dublin.

Here below are some stunning vintage photos that show what Dublin looked like in the 1960s. Also check, Ireland in the 1960s.
