Curves in Cork

Curves in Cork

description

Summary

Chose this curvy photo of the railway station in Cork for the bewildering multiplicity of signage. Most scenes in our early photos are blissfully uncluttered, but not this one!..Also chose it because it has a clock clearly displaying the time (like a moth to a flame), and the advertising posters are fab (technical term). However, think the adverts contain a first on our Flickr stream, unless of course you know different - Earth Closets!..Also wonder what happened ladies who got confused or were short-sighted and wandered into the Ladies First Class Room rather than Ladies Third Class Room?..Date: After 2 February 1893..NLI Ref.: L_NS_00149 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/vtls000343144 )

Images from our photo collections that show those magnificent men (and women) in their flying, choo choo-ing, and driving machines... Oh, and we've cheated, we're adding boats and ships, jaunting cars and carriages, trams too and bicycles - we're completely shameless. So, basically any form of transport - air, sea, land - with the exception of two human feet...
