Wheels around Cork

Author : Cyril McIntyre
ISBN : 9781840332476
Cover : paperback
Price : £9.00

The city and county of Cork are covered together in this book, which is a typical 'wheels' book featuring a wide range of transportation modes from trains to buses, bicycles, cars, trams and lorries. On the cover is Blackwater Bridge where bus passengers had to disembark and cross the bridge to board another vehicle on the other side after weight restrictions were introduced in 1939. A second view inside the book shows them re-embarking, having crossed over on foot, by bicycle or by car. There are nostalgic photographs of Patrick Street, Grand Parade, and other familiar city centre locations, whilst places further a-field include: Cronin's Hotel at Gougane Barra, Crosshaven, Glengarriff, Macroom and Monkstown. Although all the photographs have a transport element in them, they will be of interest to general readers, showing as they do locations across the city and county from a time gone by.
