Eye-opening footage of Dubliners in the 1970s

Wow, people really dressed up for the pub back then.

LOOK AT THIS beautiful three-minute film of Dubliners going about their business in 1976:


Two questions:

1. What is the kid on the corner doing in the first minute or so?

2. Why don’t we have traffic policemen dressed up like that anymore?

Answers in the comments please.
