if ever you go to dublin town...

Sightseeing in the Temple Bar district.

Our caption today comes from the title of the book, If Ever You Go to Dublin Town, a collection of images by the Irish photographer Elinor Wiltshire.

The discovery of Ms. Wiltshire's photographs was one of the highlights of our visit to Dublin. Her classic Rolleiflex images of Ireland during the 1950s and 1960s render a beautifully sensitive portrait of place and time.

These young women probably weren't around then.
