Old Donegal Town

A while back I scanned some old postcards of Donegal Town that I borrowed from my Aunty Isabel. They’ve been pretty popular on flickr.com, with this one getting over 900 views:

And this one getting over 1800 views:
Donegal Town: The Diamond 1973

Both of these were taken sometime in the 1970’s and I can’t take credit for taking the pictures, that would have been John Hinde or the postcard company he owned of the same name and sold in 1973 (right around the time these pictures were probably taken).

I really like these pics, they’re very nostalgic for me as the the postcard themselve remind me my childhood, as these were sold around the town up to the late 1980’s (even after the center of town changed they made the center into an open plaza with any cars on it). I can barely remember the town looking like, I would have been 3 or 4?
