Albert Quay in Cork

A visit to Edwardian Cork captures the docks on an unusually quiet Sunday.

Non-Fiction 1902 2 mins Silent


Cork's Albert Quay, named in honour of Victoria and Albert's visit to the city in 1849, is seen here on a relatively quiet Sunday morning in 1902. Views of Montenotte can be clearly appreciated from the quayside and the camera follows a Mitchell and Kenyon showman in a white hat, who appears to be subtly directing the action.
