Preparation of the Cork Exhibition Grounds and Erection of Buildings (1902)
A sneak preview of the attractions at the Cork International Exhibition some time before its May 1902 opening.
Non-Fiction 1902 2 mins Silent
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.
