42 Fascinating Photos of Dublin That Defined the Face of Ireland in the 1960s

Dublin is the capital and largest city in Ireland. It is in the province of Leinster on the east coast of Ireland, at the mouth of the River Liffey and bordered on the south by the Wicklow Mountains.

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 at these photos to see how Dublin was like from the 1960s.
