  1. In 1948 the trams to Dartry (14) and Terenure (15) were still running. It was their last year, the rest of the very extensive system having been ripped up over the previous 10 years. From the Pillar, up and down Westmoreland St., Nassau St., Dawson St., round the Green on the north and west sides and up Harcourt St. And onwards to Dartry and Terenure Crossroads.

    DunLaoghaire & Dalkey line (7 & 8) closed a year later. End of Dublin trams.

    69 years after… look what we’re doing again. Progress, nothing like it ūüėČ

    Great pics, DubDoug. Haven’t seen most of them before.
