1832: Thomas Holt's map of Cork city

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 lanes which housed wretched and poverty-stricken people, to the west of St Patrick's Street and the Grand Parade, had to be cleared away.
