A charming collection of photographs of everyday life in Cork city in the 1960s taken by renowned photographer Anthony Barry. The aspect that is most striking about Anthony Barry's collection of photographs is the pace of life which he captures so beautifully. His subjects, the ordinary people of Cork, are caught in completely natural poses, mostly unaware that they are being photographed. Cork people haggle on the Coal Quay, stare into space, queue for a bus or watch the world go by from a street corner. Some of Barry's subjects are having animated discussions, arguing or pulling up a stray sock. It is most definitely a portrait of another time. It is now over ten years since Anthony Barry's first collection of photographs 'No Lovelier City' was published and this long-awaited follow up will be hugely popular.
