Cork Then & Now
The popular tourist city of Cork has a rich heritage, which is uniquely reflected in this fascinating new compilation.
Contrasting a selection of forty-five archive images alongside full-colour modern photographs, this book delves into the changing faces and buildings of this historic county. Comparing the workers of yesteryear with today’s modern men and women, along with some famous landmarks and little-known street scenes, this is a wide-ranging look at the city’s colourful history.
As well as delighting the many tourists who visit the city, Cork Then & Now will provide present Corkonians with a glimpse of how the city used to be, in addition to awakening nostalgic memories for those who used to live or work here.
