I have been photographing and recording dates on buildings in Cork and have part-uploaded to the website.
Last week’s blog on the lovely hopper at Cash’s has set me off on another track – photographing the different hoppers in Cork, particularly those with individual engravings, mouldings or designs.
There I was today, not quite minding my own business as a member of the Garda Síochána was observing me and subsequently questioned my actions. I was photographing the hopper on the Bridewell Garda Station. I discovered that the 4 hoppers each have the date of 1932 – presumably the date of construction.
I haven’t seen that before.
