Albert Quay in 1902

Watch Albert Quay in Cork (1902) - BFI Player

Cork's Albert Quay, named in honour of Victoria and Albert's visit to the city in 1849, is seen here on a relatively quiet Sunday morning in 1902. Views of Montenotte can be clearly appreciated from the quayside and the camera follows a Mitchell and Kenyon showman in a white hat, who appears to be subtly directing the action.
