Myrtleville Swimmers – 1905

Presumably it was a predecessor of Siobhan’s who took these fantastic pictures of Myrtleville around 1905, complete with swimmers starting their swims.



Very interesting to see the old coastguard station so clearly in the pictures. With all the scrub and trees around it cleared in the last month, it’s very clear from the water now.

These are from a Facebook group called Old Photos of Cork City & County – well worth logging onto if you’re a Facebook user.  It’s a great resource and being added to constantly.
