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 )
