Hansom cabs and petticoats – and mullets and beatboxes – have all gone the way of the dodo, but we’d love to show and share with readers your photos of your area and community in the rare aul’ times.

Dublin has changed an awful lot in just a few decades, and with major changes in our capital’s demographics there are an awful lot of people (not just our beloved culchies) who don’t know what the city and her suburbs used to look like.

That’s why we’re calling on you to help show what your area used to look like, with everyone from readers to historical groups invited to share their shots.

We’re looking for images of Baile Atha Cliath way back when, submitted by the people who know the city best – our readers.

If you have a picture of Ringsend, Finglas and beyond in the rare aul times, we’d love to hear from you.

Send your images and a brief description of the picture to news@dublingazette.com, with ‘Rare Aul Dublin’ in the subject line, along with your name.

Images must be sent in a JPEG format when possible. A picture taken of an image is also accepted, but please ensure that the picture taken is of good quality. Please ensure that you have the copyright for the images that you submit also.
