Preparation of the Cork Exhibition Grounds and Erection of Buildings 1902

1 mins United Kingdom

Filmed around a month before the opening of the exhibition, these scenes show work still being carried out on the grounds, including the water chute (some 60 feet high) on the River Lee. The grounds were later renamed Fitzgerald Park after the Lord Mayor. The exhibition would have been the talk of Cork, so this film was virtually guaranteed an eager audience, fuelling even greater anticipation.
