Cork Business Archives

Friday, 17 June 2011

Cork City and County Archives have a new online exhibition that "explores the commercial heritage of Cork through its historical archives."

The exhibition is called Cork: Merchant City and features a variety of items from different collections within the archive including examples from shipping, brewing, provisions, distilling and retail industries.

There's also a great article in the Irish Times about the family dynasties behind many of the businesses.

Thanks to ArchivesIreland on twitter for this infomation.
