With the hashtag #myoldnegatives, Eric Luke, a celebrated staff photographer with the Irish Times, started publishing photos from his archive on Twitter last year.

His snaps of Ireland in the 1970s and ‘80s are flash backs to Dublin streets, to a Dalkey barber shop, to Poitin making in Connemara, to festivals concerts with Queen and David Bowie.

Let them take you back in time.
