I don’t know about that. It just looks like a general form of transport, like in Amsterdam today, before the levels of motor traffic made it impossible/unpleasant. Notice old gents and ladies who don’t look poor in the shot outside City Hall.

This (1961) must have been about the last time you saw mass cycling in Dublin. The decline in the ’60s must have been massive. I wonder did people talk about this at the time, or did it just go unremarked?

Even going out on the city streets on a bike today, you are mostly on your own – no other cyclists around you.
