As others on this thread where I found this image said, probably half of Cork worked here at one time or other in the mid to late twentieth century.
All I remember of Dunlops is the pitch and putt club which is now gone and replaced by a small housing estate in Blackrock.
From the Cork, Blackrock and Passage Railway group on Facebook:
Pictured at Albert Street station is CB&PR locomotive No. 1 which ran on the Cork to Passage West broad gauge line from July 1850 until the conversion to narrow gauge in 1900. It was painted light green with black bands and yellow lining. The dome, just behind the chimney, was of polished brass. It was scrapped in 1900. (Credit to David Harte for the photograph)
You’ll probably recognise the houses in the background, Park View on Victoria Road. I’ve driven or cycled past there too many times to count.
Albert Quay, Cork, has been and continues to be, the site of extensive building work. This is what it looked like in the summer of 1981 when the quay itself was under construction. Via Twitter.
Before the South Link was built. Via Facebook where this photo was posted but it was flipped horizontally.
This is what it looks like today from much the same location.
Union Quay seems little changed except for that shorter building at the far right, maybe.
Found on Facebook.
St. Fin Barre’s Cathedral. Richard Mills/Evening Echo 1981. Found on Facebook.
