  1. A great photo, it’s amazing how built up the Dublin road is since then. What sticks out are the lamp posts, particularly the one at the townclock, did you mention somewhere before the date they were installed?

Must check out lamposts – will see if I can get a clearer zoom. Interesting to compare with other photos to see if they were there – might help with date!

          I don’t see a phonebox so this might help date it.
