The Influence of the Netherlands on Cork City in the Seventeenth & Eighteenth Centuries
City Walking Tours with historian Tom Spalding
Sunday 19 & 26 September
11am - 12 midday
Join Tom on a walking tour exploring layered histories and Dutch influences in the heart of our city.
These tours accompany the exhibition Rembrandt in Print, here in the Crawford Art Gallery.
The gallery is housed in what was once the city’s custom house which witnessed the trade partnership with the Netherlands. Salted beef, pork and butter were supplied from our safe harbour to the Dutch West Indies and the ports of Holland.
Tom is a writer and historian, the author of several books on design history. His book Layers was praised by the Irish Arts Review as ‘expertly researched, deftly written …a worthy addition to the growing body of literature on Irish design history.’
Walking Route: starting from the gallery on Emmet Place then St Paul's Church - Brown Street - Lavitt's Quay – via Patrick Street & Winthrop Street - ending on South Mall.
Places strictly limited to 20
Dress for the weather!
