This new historical atlas of Cork will explore the city from its origins to the present day. The emergence of Cork from a monastic settlement on a marshland site through to the thriving city we know today is explained in a thoroughly researched text, illustrated with newly created thematic maps, early views and photographs. Historic maps are reproduced on large-format pages, showing how the topography transformed through time. A gazetteer of over 13,000 sites and an accompanying essay give the detailed topographical history of the city up to c. 1900.
