Postcards of Cork, c.1900
Postcards of Cork, 100 years ago:
A selection of Cork postcards are below, which I bought from eBay over the years. Life in early twentieth century Cork has become a popular topic of research in recent years (World War I, War of Independence & social conditions). These postcards reveal the beauty of Cork City – its architecture, waterways, its parks and its people.
Cork Public Museum have a large archive of Cork postcards; my co-publication with them is Cork City Through Time. To purchase the book, click here, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cork-City-Through-Kieran-McCarthy/dp/1445611422
