The Sunny South of Ireland – Three Volumes
|Published||Unknown (1906 - 1924)|
|Publisher||Great Southern & Western Railway, Kingsbridge, Dublin|
These three works represent advertising by the Great Southern & Western Railway to prospective tourists on the delights that were located in the areas served by the GS&WR. With no publication date visible, the closest I can date the publications to is between 1906 and 1924. The three guides cover:
Cork & Waterford
Dublin and Limerick
That Killarney, as one of the most overhyped tourist locations in Ireland, gets a book to itself, shows what can be done with marketing. The guides list what can be seen in the towns featured and also give details of golf, fishing and shooting opportunities which were near to relevant GS&WR railway stations.
The books are illustrated with stock photos of featured locations supplied by local landscape photographers – the best known of which was William Lawrence.
Days Hotel Belfast - located in a lovely area of Belfast where the Union Jack flies from every lamppost and the kerbstones are painted blue white and red.
