Union Quay, Cork


Union Quay, Cork sometime between 1900 and 1920 as posted here.

Cork College of Commerce would be built out of shot on the left bank while directly ahead is the School of Music. Is that building at the end of the left bank the old Suttons building?

Before Bishop Lucey Park


Bishop Lucey Park on the Grand Parade was a car park before. I have to admit I have no memory of this at all. Even though I always think of Bishop Lucey Park as “new” it was actually opened in 1985!

Pre Bishop Lucey Park. This was taken around the same time as Tony’s photo of the Grand Parade. We had a radio Station “Leeside” on the top floor of the Shamrock shop. There was a 12″ drop from one side of the room to the other, so rent was cheap.
