Sometimes I pretend to be normal, but it gets boring so I go back to being myself

Greenrooster - great photo.
I too walked that street many
times, whenever I worked at
Reeds.
What year would that be?
Just wondering if the Train Station
was still there.

Lived down there for 7 years before
moving to Clonallon Gardens.
Great place for a young boy growing
up, Fire Station across the road and
the Train Station up the street.

Always something going on,and good
memories of the people,and going up
to No.10 to see Granny Durkin.

Photo maybe from late 40's / early 50's.

I'd say the photo is from the early to mid sixties,,that car is a Singer Gazelle and they were very popular in the sixties.
if you zoom in on the photo you can see the Station wall is still there,there's a bus where they normally parked at the Station entrance.the trains stopped in 1965,so it may have been still open at the time of this photo.

I would have thought it was around that
time as well.
I could see the Bus at the Station, so it
was probably still open.
Not much traffic on the Street then.

I should have had a closer look before
guessing the date. ~x(

The photo couldn't have been taken
before 1965, given that the Gazelle
is a Mark VI with the lowered grille,
which was first produced in 1965.
