Kilkenny Shopfronts through the Ages


Kilkenny Shopfronts is a collection of photographs of the shopfronts in each Street in central Kilkenny City covering the period between the late 20th century and the present. Most of the Material provides photographic evidence of Kilkenny’s ever changing streetscape and shopfronts through the years. The source of the photos originated from various planning surveys through the decades.
The project also highlights the way shopping has changed over the years and how the High Street in particular is constantly evolving, impacted by the forces of technology, culture and shopping behaviour.
