Guy’s Cork City & County Almanac and Directory 1920
Guy’s Almanacs and Directories are invaluable sources of information. They provide important historical details about Cork and its people, including names of the heads of households, information on businesses, public institutions, and educational and medical establishments. The 1920 almanac is of particular importance because it gives us a snap shot of the city before it was burned in December 1920.
We also have a range of newspapers and books available to view online.
