In 1922, Ireland was once more a battlefield, as the Civil War saw conflict break out all over the country. In this interactive series, photographer David Cleary returns to locations captured on film back in 1922 and takes new photographs showing how those settings have changed - or not.
This photo, taken in August 1922, shows the arrival of Free State troops in Cork, as part of one of the major offensives of the Civil War. We see an armoured vehicle in Pembroke Street in the city centre, with Free State troops around it. In the foreground a crowd has gathered, while in the background can be seen the building then housing the Cork Chamber of Commerce.
