    I am going to take a stab at the winter of 82/83. The cars and bus schemes, not to mention New PMPA scream early 80s, and I remember that snow very well :)

    Advertising in the 80s:

    “We need a font…. something to stand out on the side of a bus….” said the creative director.
    “We could enlarge the letters on this typewriter” replied the creative intern.
    And by 10.30am Monday morning as the pubs were opening, they went to lunch for the rest of the week, knowing they’d cracked the pitch for New PMPA campaign.

    THE END

      Never forgave them for taking away the open platform with the pole so you could swing on or off the bus without it having to stop.

    I remember watching the buses waltz around St Stephens Green. Great fun. Traffic went the opposite direction to now.. just for added nostalgia.
