Re: Re: Most Beautiful Building in Cork?
Where were the trams kept at night time? There must have been some type of yard where they kept them? I love looking at all the pictures of them. Good exhibition on a few months back in one of the art galleries showing old photos and paintings. Shame they’re gone.
There was a tram garage on Albert Road – top end, near the traffic lights.
It later became a depot for the ESB and is now used for various things including the Cork Sculpture Factory.
Trams ran to various places such as Blackrock, St. Lukes and the Western Road.
If you are really interested in the trams and their history, try the City Library for a book called ‘Tram Tracks through Cork’ by Walter McGrath and published in 1981.
