To celebrate the 12th birthday of this site, every day during November 2008 we are showing one or more old photos from the period 1996 to date.
At first glance this O’Connell Street scene from 1999 looks fairly normal, a couple of Dublin Bus AD-types passing in the city centre.
Look closer however, you you will see that this is a rare meeting of the AD on the left with its country cousin, Cork’s DA-class. (Both are Alexander Setanta bodied DAF SB220 citybuses, but the eagle-eyed will spot some slight differences between the two types)
AD41 and DA9 are seen outside Dublin Bus HQ in O’Connell Street.
As a bonus, below is another DAF SB220 odd shot – P40 seen on loan to Bus Eireann, working a short on route 126 in 1998.
