DALKEY, County Dublin, Ireland – January, 2000

001Here is a photo I took in January, 2000 as I wandered around the village of Dalkey, County Dublin, Ireland.  As you can see, the road is narrow and the cars are small.  What you don’t necessarily see is that the cars park up onto the sidewalk which does not have a very high curb.  If you could remove the cars and wires, just imagine a horse drawn carriage moving up or down this little road.  It was a clear day, though cold, and you can see the smoke coming from the chimneys of some of the houses.

  1. I do love your photos, so full of memories. My dad lost a wheel on that hill coming into Dalkey. Of course there was hardly any traffic back then. I was about four or five.
