Recognize Grafton Street in 1947?

Do you recognize Grafton Street from 1947? This is a beautiful old photo that we found on Flickr from the National Library of Ireland. Click on the image for a larger version and tell us what you see and recognize. It’s a wonderful image with great details.

Grafton Street in Dublin, long before pedestrianisation was even a twinkle in Dublin Corporation’s eye. Check out the tags for the car registrations that are clear enough to read – the only one I’m unsure of is either ZD 6822 or 9822.
