This is a beautiful old photo of the Irish coast near Dublin. Check out below, where we’ve posted a deeper description of the image from Flickr.

Locals and day trippers enjoying the sunshine at Rush, Co. Dublin. Like this one for the clear examples of the progression of wheeled transport – bicycle, motorbike and car. But I think there may be a horse in there as well (or perhaps a cow which ruins the whole “horse” power vibe). The car registration no. is YI 9567 or YI 9562, but it is definitely YI 956#.

DannyM8 has identified the car as a Citroen B10 1925 and gives Dublin City Registration Plates as going from YI 1 to YI 9999 (Apr 1921 – Mar 1927). Our reg. no. is YI 9567 or 9562, so would that give us a date of around 1926 rather than 1925?

And our thanks to Philip Ward for spotting yet another form of wheeled transportation – a pram!

We were unsure whether this was the North or the South Beach, but shocko990, artvaleri and swordscookie all confirm South Beach, thanks very much!
