Take a step back in time to the auld streets of Dublin in 1965 (VIDEO)

Driving through Dublin can be a nightmare but at least we have street markings now.

Fancy taking a scenic tour of 1960s Dublin? Well, now you can with this 50-year-old footage of Ireland’s capital.

According to Liffeybanx, who published the footage on YouTube, the video was captured as part of a CIE Dublin Bus training video shot in 1965. It even opens with some shots of old Dublin buses getting ready to venture out onto the city's slippery, wet, rain-sodden streets. 

The black and white 10-minute video shows police directing traffic in their special uniforms, the city’s unmarked roads and pedestrians constantly walking out in front of vehicles.

Iconic Dublin landmarks such as Christ Church Cathedral, Trinity College and O'Connell Bridge are also featured.
