The Visit of the Duke of Connaught C-I-C Forces in Ireland and Prince Henry of Prussia to Cork Exhibition

A dozen years before hostilities broke out between Britain and Germany, members of their respective royal families visited the Cork Exhibition together on 8 May 1902. They are shown here inspecting one of its most imposing visual highlights: the gigantic water chute, which cost £3,000 to construct (nearer £300,000 today), as well as a police parade and more leisurely boating activities.
