Evening Echo 125th Anniversary Exhibition
Place: St Peter's Cork
Tickets: Free Entry
St Peter’s Cork is delighted to host the Evening Echo’s latest exhibition, a collection of “now and then” photographs from contemporary and historic Cork. To mark the Evening Echo’s 125th anniversary, an exhibition of archive and contemporary photos are on view to the public in our Ground Floor Gallery. Running alongside our local heritage exhibition A City by the Sea, the Echo’s collection offer real insight into Cork’s rich history.
The exhibition offers a great opportunity to compare modern Cork life and architecture to the city’s past design and infrastructure. Of particular note are the large images of life inside the newspaper’s printing rooms and wonderful images of the Capitol Cinema and Queens Old Castle.
Visitors enjoy wandering through the exhibition, getting a real sense of how Cork has developed over the decades. It’s a great exhibition for visitors and locals alike, especially for families as it’s very visual and engaging making it accessible for younger audiences. How has our city changed? Do you recognise the buildings, do you see anyone you know?!
This exhibitions is free to the public and will run until September 2017.
Join us for a visual tour of Cork through the ages.
