Re: Re: Milk Market
State of Dereliction (late 1970’s)
Despite its run down appearance then, the Saturday market day was always well visited.
Limerick Museum: see original
Just looking at the full size image, it would appear that it was taken some time between 1989 and 1991:eek:. If you look closely you can see that Arthur’s Quay has been completed in the background and also just visible in the centre background, is the Denmark Street area pre-Cruises Street.
Im not old enough to remember what the city was like in the late 80s/early 90s but the scale of dereliction in this image is pretty shocking. Its unfortunate though that a couple of fine buildings along the Robert Street side of the market were sacrifificed as part of that awful cornmarket square development!:rolleyes:
It would be interesting to see more images of the city from this period, just as the urban renewal scheme was kicking in.
