hey guys,

I know its more 20th century related, but as I know from my own behavior that some people might not look in this category, I preferred to post it here:

Is the footage of Cork of old from the Day Collection? Something in my mind tells me it is, but I'm not 100% sure....

Brilliant footage, great to see the trams in action, it's always hard to visualise how they would have moved from looking at photos. used to have them in Galway city long ago too.

Thanks for posting this link! I love the comparrison of Cork ca 1903 and today. My museum owns a similar film of Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1912:

Enter the theater based on your computer set up. The sad thing is, that most of these buildings no longer exist. I hope things are better preserved in Cork.
