A fascinating collection of some of Cork’s most interesting historical photographs and documents, from the author of the best-selling Hidden Cork.

Cork today is a prosperous and international city, recently voted one of the top ten cities in the world by Lonely Plant, visited by thousands every year and loved by its inhabitants.

From a medieval walled town to a bustling port and now a modern, thriving city, Cork’s landscape has changed enormously in the last 300 years.

This unique collection of Cork memorabilia visually captures Cork’s evolution in a selection of advertisements, maps, sketches, postcards and photographs which has taken many years to collect. From horse transport to the early motor car, trams to buses, steam locomotives to ships, people, buildings and streetscapes, this compilation of rare photographs and contemporary documents combines to illustrate the intriguing social and historical development of the city.

The author’s enthusiasm for his city is reflected throughout this stunning book and is indeed ’Pure Cork’ boy!
