Hope this link works ok - it's a website belonging to my cousin who lives in England now but loves photography & if you have a nosey through the site you'll see lots of Dún Laoghaire/Blackrock photos.

Happened on this set of photos - I dont recall seeing them in any forum before

I hope this is the right location for them

Theres lots more of local and Irish interest to see in other albums by the same author. I wonder who he might be.

Gang,
Just having my say re Major Galloways pictures...Bus at Killiney is .NOT a Leyland. BUT A BEDFORD SB from the early 1950s, some might say its a Commer ..Deffo NOT a Leyland.
Love the piccies of Ross's Hotel...I delivered the milk there as a boy and had brekkie in the Stillroom.

The one I like the best is the one of "Ladies College" which I only knew as Peekers.
& it sure was an education.

Micheál,

Peekers sure was an education!! never knew it had been a school. Dun Laoghaire must have been so P.C and sedate at one time!

Think the one of Killiney is particularly nice.

Must go up and see where the photo was taken from - now theres a job for Farmboy.
