I think everyone’s getting a little carried away here with the nostalgia of these photos.
There are so many bicycles on the streets because people couldn’t afford cars, not because they cared about the environment or had any kind of social conscience regarding traffic congestion or pollution.
That 10-year-old boy that you’re all so impressed at being able to cycle on the ‘safe’ streets of 1960s Dublin is probably on his way to work a shift in St. James’ Gate, and it looks like he’s suffering with lice, or possibly fleas.
