CORK IN THE 1960s: Photographic archive of Former Lord Mayor Anthony Barry to be published online (The Cork)

The Cork: CORK IN THE 1960s: Photographic archive of Former Lord Mayor Anthony Barry to be published online. “The Cork City and County Archives is delighted to announce that it has received the donation of the photographic archive of Anthony Barry (1901-1983), with the kind assistance of the Barry family. The collection includes over 5,000 original photographic images of 1960s and 1970s Cork city and county captured by the former Lord Mayor. Anthony Barry is remembered as the owner of a small grocery business in Bridge Street and Princes Street, Cork, that would later specialise in teas. Under Barry’s son Peter, the business would grow into the major household name we know today as Barry’s Tea.” This archive has just gotten started, but several hundred images are already available.
