1832 : Thomas Holt's map of Cork city & suburbs

Holt's map of 1832 is one of the first maps to show Great George's Street, which was opened in 1824 (and renamed Washington Street in 1918). Before the street could be built, an area of wretched lanes housing poverty-stricken people, to the west of St Patrick's Street and the Grand Parade, had to be cleared away.

This clearer digital scan (made in October 2013) replaced the former digital map on this page.
