An old man stops at the end of Paul Street, Cork. I think he spotted me taking his photo.
Each year the Lord Mayor of Cork is given a top of the range Ford car to drive. It’s always the first car registered in the new year, hence the XX-C-1 number plate.
Unfortunately for the Lord Mayor, they have to give it back when their annual term is over. Such a car is now in the possession of a taxi driver in Blarney so at least it’s still serving the public ..
Patrick Street, Cork as seen from the 1st floor of Mothercare..
Looking out the winder beats trying to navigate all the baby stuff in the shop!
Debenhams bought Irish department store chain, "Roches Stores", back in 2006, and rebranded their Cork store on Patrick Street shortly afterwards.
Unfortunately nobody has yet replaced the big "Roches Stores" logo at the top of the building. It’s still there, more than a year later!

Clothes pegs in a textured cloth bag, Marlboro branded plastic bag, 1993 calendar. Shot at my parents-in-law house.
I love the texture of the clothes bag, but that wasn’t what attracted my attention at first. It was the calendar and the Marlboro bag. Since cigarette advertising is now banned it’s unusual to see any sign outside of shops.
A small boy waits outside Brown Thomas with his dad while I presume his mother shops inside.
I had plenty of company while I waited!
