Had hoped that the boards leaning up against Jordan’s windows on the right there were news posters, but it looks like a bar and they’re ads for whiskies. However, some dating information might be gleaned from the posters in the windows for a Collection to do with the Cathedral, and a Passion Play.

Photographer: Poole Photographic Studios, Waterford

Date: Early 1890s?? (Definitely between 1884 when bell tower was added to St. Aidan’s Cathedral and 1908 when third storey was added to the Market House)

NLI Ref.: P_WP_0478

    The cathedral is gorgeous, designed by Pugin it is beautifully decorated inside.

    [] Pugin was a busy chap! And you might at least let me know your travel itinerary in advance of departure. Then I could check photos, and you could snoop around while you’re gallivanting… :)

    J (Jacob) Boardman , grocer & publican, is on Market Street in 1901 but no Boardman’s (men) there in 1911. 25" OSI (1903) Streetview

    [] Thank you – nudged the date up by a few years.

    [] Excellent that there were no Boardmen there in 1911! And thanks for Jacob – love changing an initial to the full name… Also, great idea putting a date on the OSI Map link!!
