These were the days when you didn't know the number of the bus because the advertising was so over the top.

That brings back memories of JMOB home bread deliveries by Gerry the Baker and then his son who took over the round when his dad retired.

Deliveries Tuesday - Saturday and bread left on the doorstep except on Saturdays when the bill was paid

i recognise the contribution they made in terms of employment but im not on about the 60s or 70s but the pointless re branding exercise and the crazy salary their ceo is on so get off your high horse. anyhow this site is for old brands. if you want to discuss esb fair enough im sure there is a thread somewhere on boards for that but for now we'll talk old logos.

I remember the last Kimberley box in that photo.

About the ESB/Electric Ireland rebrand, they were required to rebrand by the CER as a condition of allowing them to set their own prices. I agree it's pointless, and to be honest they probably didn't want to do it themselves.
