|Old Dublin photos - vintage 1930's street scenes.|
Early 20th century Ireland photos of traffic on O'Connell Street Bridge in Dublin city. 1930's central Dublin street scene image with electric trams, vintage cars & pedestrians traverse O'Connell Street Bridge. On the Liffey river a Guinness Barge approaches, making its way upriver to the nearby Guinness Brewery at St James's Gate.
The Guinness barges ferried beer barrels from St. James's Gate brewery to Victoria Quay where Guinness ships docked. Until the late 1950's the barges were used extensively on Ireland's waterways to transport Guinness barrels. Their funnels were hinged, enabling them to be lowered when travelling under Liffey river bridges at high tides.
