Dunnes Stores on Patrick Street, Cork is no more. This is the back of the front of that building which has featured a number of times on my blog.
The whole block is now gone!
A JCB helps to dig up the Grand Parade in Cork. This was shot last September and like the previous couple of shots, this street is completely different now. It’s looking well, although the fancy stonework is begining to lose it’s shine. The chewing gum is sticking, and the fumes of a living city blacken and dirty the white and red stone of the surface.
Still, it looked nice when it was completed. They’re just finishing off bits of the Grand Parade now so it’s interesting to see the difference between the new surface and the older.
