Cork: Merchant City

Retail Heritage

Grand Parade, 1902-1903.

Electric trams served Cork from 1898 until 1931 and here two of them travel down Grand Parade, sharing the road with pedestrians, horse-drawn traffic and a street sweeper. Grand Parade was an important retail area of Cork and shops can be seen lining the street.
