Views of the Grand Parade, Cork (1902)
Views of St Patrick's Street and Grand Parade in Cork, awash with people and traffic.
The pedestrians are either engrossed by the camera or dodging traffic in this busy thoroughfare in Cork. St Patrick Street buzzes with electric trams, introduced to the city in 1898. From another viewpoint in Grand Parade the camera captures an array of vehicles and activities, including street sweepers, bicycles, a steam roller and an eye-catching strand-off between a donkey and a tram.
This film was commissioned by showman George Green for the Cork Exhibition in May 1902.
