    FYI: Probably down to the original meta data/labelling, but strictly speaking that's NOT the "Old Cork Customs House". That's the "Old Cork City Hall". To clarify:

    The Old Cork Customs House is an 18th century building on Emmet Place. (Built 1724 it later became premises of the Royal Cork Institution. The building is still there - now part of Crawford School of Art). The New Cork Customs House was built in 1818 by Abraham Hargrave on Albert Street. (In 1882 it became HQ of the Cork Harbour Commissioners. The building is still there - now home to Port of Cork Company) The Old Cork City Hall (pictured here) was built in the 19th Century on Albert Quay. (Originally a corn exchange it was extended and repurposed for municipal use after the Cork Exhibition. It was destroyed in the burning of Cork in 1920 - and is gone) The New Cork City Hall was built in the 1930s to replace the old structure on Albert Quay. (It was opened in 1936 - and is still there)
    The map coordinates are therefore not entirely accurate. Should actually be around here.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] You are an absolute legend! Have changed description, tags, and hopefully the location is now more accurate - thank you so much for going to all this trouble...

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] No worries. Location is spot on. (FYI - The "boxy" building on photo's extreme left is still there. And, coincidentally, is the Albert Quay goods station we were talking about earlier :)

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] Wasn't around to witness it myself, but by all accounts a rail worker (red flag in hand) marshalled traffic at junctions. (As evidenced by various different shots of locos on that line over brian boru bridge).

    Full marks for drawing attention to the stereo pairs. I was looking for a shot of Martello Tower No.1 (Bray) in the Lawrence collection and couldn't find any. I asked the chap in your photo archive in Temple Bar "Is this all you've got?" "That's it bar the stereo pairs" I was told. And what did I find in the stereo pairs? Fabulous shot of the Tower from around what is now the Martello Bar on the Esplanade.
