A young nun walking Holy Communion girls past no. 3, Halston Street, Dublin on the feast of Corpus Christi. Interesting juxtaposition with the older mini-skirted local girls. The baskets were usually filled with flower petals for the girls to scatter along the way... Thanks to Phyllis Stice over on our Facebook for allowing us to get to the exact date of 5 June 1969, from the unsatisfactory "sometime in 1969"! Photographer: Elinor Wiltshire Date: 5 June 1969 NLI Ref.: WIL 45[9]

Madame Nora of O'Connell Street Dublin. Oh, the mortification of walking in there to get your underwear. Sales assistant that called you Modem in a phoney rich voice. The best place for well fitted undergarments though. Molly Malone, Ireland Homes, Dublin City, Dublin Ireland, Book Of Life, Old Photos, The Good Place, Explore, Ivy Rose

Madame Nora of O'Connell Street Dublin was a well established dress shop for women.
