Emma, a small alley somewhere in San Francisco. Shot three years ago while on a photowalk around the city. Only 9 places left for the photowalk tomorrow. I emailed everyone today. Did you get your email?
As I mentioned already in my Polish Coal post, my dad worked in Suttons Coals for years. Gardner House on the South Mall in Cork used to be called Suttons House but then coal’s fortunes changed. Oil and gas became more popular. Legislation banned any coal other than smokeless coal from urban areas and the […]
“O’Briens’ HQ placed in examinership” according to this news report yesterday. This is their fairly recently opened (and more recently closed) “sandwich bar” on Oliver Plunkett Street here in Cork.

Actually, I don’t like the Hi B. Any pub owner who verbally attacks his customers […]
