Cork in the 1960s, Anthony Barry Archive

The photographic archive of former Lord Mayor Anthony Barry (b1901-d1983),  the father of Peter Barry T.D., is a unique collection of photographs taken in person and with great skill by Barry, comprising mainly street scenes of Cork City from the mid 1960s to the 1970s. Anthony Barry’s archive was kindly donated to Cork Archives by the Barry family in 2016. The archive comprises 109 photographic albums containing mainly monochrome prints, with up to 50 photos in each, plus 884 loose monochrome photographic prints, plus 200 colour slides, in total comprising over 5,000 photographs. These images are now being digitised and repackaged to international archival standards, in order that they may be preserved, and made accessible online.
