Dublin in the 1960s
Dublin in the 1960s with an introduction by Dermot Bolger
Dublin in the 1960s takes the reader on a trip down memory lane with each of the 287 pages providing a visual step back in time.
Compiled from the archives of Independent Newspapers Ireland Dublin in the 1960s is a fascinating glimpse of life in our nation's capital including some of the most colourful visitors of the decade: American presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy, celebrities including Audrey Hepburn, Charlie Chaplin and The Beatles as they performed in the Adelphi Theatre in 1963.
It also captures the local people, from Moore Street traders to models at fashion shows in Arnotts and Switzers (now Brown Thomas), a couple celebrating their fiftieth anniversary, numerous community events, to the more dramatic events of the era: the aftermath of the 1962 storm when seven feet of snow fell overnight, the blowing up of Nelson’s Pillar and the last performance in the Theatre Royal.
