Cork: Merchant City

Retail Heritage

St. Patrick’s Street, late 19th century.

Crowded footpaths and busy horse-drawn traffic can be seen on the main street in Cork, while canopies shade the window displays of shops lining the streets. In the distance (centre) can be seen a sign for Grant & Company, one of the main department stores in the city.(CCCA U399-17 Wilkie Collection)
