Did you ever visit Santa in Clerys? Buy holly in Moore street? Do you have memories of Christmas Eve in Busáras, laden down with presents, waiting for the bus home? Or were you by any chance a Mansion House angel?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, we are sure you will enjoy these images of Dublin during the Christmas period.
Many of the photographs date back to 1953, when the first coloured lights were used to decorate the main shopping streets of Dublin. All are taken from the Fáilte Ireland and Dublin City Council Collections, which are held in Dublin City Library and Archive.
Enjoy the nostalgia of Christmas past - and if the images spark any memories, let us know!
