Cobh Train Station

    Newer Older

    Cobh Train Station, taken just before closing many months ago. It's a long exposure shot of the interior of a fine building on the quay-side.

    "The Queenstown Story", a museum in the background of this shot is worth a visit and tells the story of the port of Cobh as the last place 3 million Irish people saw before they sailed for the United States. Some of those sailed on the ill-fated Titanic.

    The Queenstown Story on virtualtourist.com has more reviews, and pictures of the museum if you're interested.
