Who remembers waiting outside the local newsagents on a Saturday evening between 5.45 and 6pm for the Final Score editions of the Evening Press and Herald? The moped with the big, back buckets into which the bundles of newspapers were loaded. As the bike would approach, turning sharply, sparks would fly up as the corner of the bucket would scrape off the concrete?

Felt sorry for some of the Gardaí on this, they were nearly crying with emotion to get Mrs Murphys stolen bike or flowers back .

Walked up and down it to work for most of the 80s … in various states … especially Friday nights/ Saturday mornings …

I think this photo was shot on Gardiner St up near Mountjoy Square?
