Pike's Contemporary Biographies

The Contemporary biographies section edited by W.T. Pike of Hodges Cork and County Cork in the Twentieth Century is a unique ‘who’s who’ of the nobility and gentry of Cork city and county at the beginning of the 20th century, accompanied by photographs which are redolent of the time in which they were taken. In these days of a remarkable growth of interest in all things genealogical the material deserves to be known by as wide an audience as possible.
