Today we go to Cork City in Munster to a wonderful Imperial Plate from the lens of the redoubtable Mr. French looking down from on High at the activity on King Street. This is a delight to the eye with all of the traffic, the fashions, the people and that lovely straight line leading the eye on to the distance.
A visit to Cork is appropriate as last night history was made there, the Munster team played South Africa A in the new Pairc Uí Chaoimh and won. C'mon Munster

    The height of those telephone poles! We visited the Hotel Metropole previously, but it's difficult to operate Flickr on a phone. I need a twelve year old to show me how ...

    I see the the 1897 Palace Theatre on the left, now called Everyman Palace Theatre. Laurel and Hardy and Chaplin played there. The two RIC officers are wearing different bonnets, did this happen around 1900?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Both pill box hat and the tall helmet were before 1900, around which time they change to a peaked forage cap. But I don't think they all changed on a particular day so not a hard cut-off date.

    The electric trams only started in December 1898.

    There is a long sequence of IMPs from Cork here, most not dateable. L_IMP_0722 includes posters for Barry's tea (of course) but also Cork International Exhibiiton and a MAY SUNDAY excursion or the Cork and Macroom Direct Railway. Makes ~May 1902 likely for that one.

    I’ll stick with 1900-1901 based on tram number and RIC headgear
