    GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST IN ANTIQUE PHOTOGRAPHS

    Thursday, December 24th, 2015

    There is more than a hint of the ghost of Christmas past in lot one at Dolan’s upcoming art and antiques auction at Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork on January 17.  The catalogue is in the course of preparation, but lot one is a collection of 19th century photographs of locations around Cork city and county. As you can see, they are redolent of an era that is long gone. Here is a nostalgic sample:

    Patrick St., Cork.
