Timing is everything...so they say
In the early 1980s my brother David bought his first Nikon SLR camera. Inspired by the history of the city and the obvious plight of the streets and buildings, which over the years had been ripped apart with no respect to the past and little thought for the future.
He focused the lens on a rapidly disappearing Dublin, capturing ordinary life and picturesque images in the process.
This is Dublin as it once was.
Most of the photographs, are from the 1980s, some from later decades.
