Fancy a 10-minute spin in an old VHS?

When the jam jar was king?

This is 30 years old and was shot on a Saturday afternoon in Dublin city in late March 1991.

There have been less changes in some areas than I expected; the most noticeable being Parnell Street near today’s ILAC Centre.

Name those jammers, anyone?

    Very nice, thanks for sharing – CIE Buses in green are nice and it appears back then people actually used their indicators, well many of them did.

    Me oul da had a red Carina II Liftback with the little spoiler like that one in the screengrab. A forgotten vaguely sporty-looking Toyota for men who would probably have preferred a Celica or MR2 but needed to transport kids.

    Wild ride.

    I counted only 2 bicycles in the entire video. Crazy.

    Looks like jaywalking has been part of Dublin since the vikings.

    For all you petrolheads:

    You may be interested in this excellent Netflix docu-series – if you haven’t seen it already – Formula 1: Drive to Survive.

    Three seasons of Man-Spreading entertainment.

    But, it’s much more than that.

    I would recommend to all – even cyclists.

    Thanks Paulus, I enjoyed that. The cars were so boxy back then. Nice to be reminded of the ole Kylemore bakery opposite Trinners and Judge Roy Beans a few doors up. Nachos Grandes to die for.

    That was very interesting but, to me, sad. Seeing the middle of Dublin whilst I am in lockdown in England. I was last in Ireland in December 2019 and miss it so much.

    Thanks for sharing, it’s lovely to see Dublin as it was around the time I left it. I can’t believe the mess the Corpo have made of the place now :-(
