These amazing images show Dubliners in their city between 1897 and 1904. The photographs were taken by medical student JJ Clarke. Most of these pictures show that while clothes have changed, life in general hasn’t!

The National Library of Ireland now has an amazing digital gallery which you can browse through over a cup of whatever you darn well fancy. For more fascinating pictures, see here. But in the meantime, enjoy these pictures we thought were worth gawping at.
