DALKEY, County Dublin, Ireland circa 1905

007x1This is an old Valentine Series postcard photo of Dalkey, County Dublin, Ireland.  Most of the time, views of Dalkey are either taken along the coastline or show the main street in the village.  However, this photo looks out over Dalkey from the west, with the Irish Sea (Dublin Bay) and Howth Head in the background.

The next photo is a 1951 postcard of the same scene, which shows more housing and no farm fields in the foreground.  It looks as if the area was turned into a park or some sort.
