AIB drive-in-bank on Upper Baggot Street, Dublin 4 in 1961; how it looks today
Brand New Retro tweetz:
“Ireland’s first drive-in-bank opened in 1961 at (now) AIB Upper Baggot Street D4. Officially opened by [then junior minister] Charles Haughey who then drove up to the cashier’s window and made the first lodgement, a gold sovereign.’
Name that jammer (top), anyone?
For the day that’s in it.
It was for this.

Once a year during the 1970s and 1980s UK football magazine Shoot! generously featured the League of Ireland champions of the day.
Usually one page with poorly taken team shot above a typo-stuffed caption.
Name those years (above) anyone?
