A lorry loaded with milk churns makes it’s way across the old Youghal Bridge in the mid-1940s. The bridge was subject to a speed limit of 5 miles per hour because of its deteriorating condition. It was eventually replaced by a new bridge which opened for traffic in 1963. (via Facebook)
This small building stood for years on Merchants Quay, Cork but I don’t think I ever ventured inside. Going by the comments I’ve seen it’s probably a good thing too.
It’s been torn down since, not sure when, but this is what the site looks like now. I took this photo two weeks ago.
