We will finish out the week with a run of three very interesting Lawrence shots, we start today with a photo of The Waterworks on the banks of the river Lee in Cork. Large Irish waterworks projects suggest Victorian times to me, and we have visited similar projects at Roundwood and Bohernabrenna before. This scheme is different in that it seems to rely on the river for its water supply rather than on reservoirs as is the case with the other two examples.
