51 Color Photos Capture Street Scenes of Dublin in the 1960s

Dublin is the capital and largest city of Ireland, and in the province of Leinster on Ireland's east coast, at the mouth of the River Liffey.

Founded as a Viking settlement, the Kingdom of Dublin became Ireland's principal city following the Norman invasion. The city expanded rapidly from the 17th century and was briefly the second largest city in the British Empire before the Acts of Union in 1800. Following the partition of Ireland in 1922, Dublin became the capital of the Irish Free State, later renamed Ireland.

Take a look back to this beautiful city in the 1960s through these color photographs.
