Dublin Port Rally, 27 September 2015.

On Saturday and Sunday 26-27 September, 2015, Dublin Port hosted a gathering of antique vehicles, mostly of the road-oriented variety.

I made these photographs, which include a display of railway memorabilia by Donncha Cronin and Ken Fox.

There was a grand array of buses on display, including a few like those that I’d traveled on years ago when I first visited Dublin. I thought the Soviet-era armour was pretty cool.

All of these images were exposed with my Lumix LX7.

Why print new signs if last year's will get the job done?

There were no railway locomotives on display, but this old steam tractor was chuffing about and hissing steam.

A Hillman Californian was one of the more unusual automobiles on display. I'm not an expert on these, but the owner said the styling was the work of Raymond Loewy.
