The Dublin City Council Libraries and Archives Digital repository has launched an online archive of over 43,000 historic photographs and documents. Users can search documents online by archive, date, and location at no charge.
Photos of events like the Eucharistic Congress and the North Strand Bombing are included, as well as everyday events such as social events and Dublin scenes. The Fáilte Ireland Photographic Collection with images dating from the 1930s onwards of people, places and tourist locations from across Ireland is also available.
The archive includes pictures of old documents and objects, with the oldest document dated to 1757 – of an old planning map of Dublin City.
