Where: 72-73 Meagher's Quay, Waterford, X91 V962, Ireland

When: 30 May 1911

Apologies for indulging my love of posters, but just look at them - waiting, willing, wanting to be explored!

It looks as if the local bill poster for Great Southern & Western Railways got up earlier in the morning, or worked later into the night than all the other bill posters in town. We get to enjoy them over 100 years later because Mrs Dollard at 41 Barronstrand Street in Waterford had a big building job done around the end of May 1911...

Photographer: Poole Photographic Studios, Waterford

Date: Tuesday, 30 May 1911

    Looks like the building was rebuilt a metre or so back to fit in with the line of the AIB Bank next door.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia] And no. 41 in 1911 has miraculously become no. 40 today (or whenever the Google Van tootled up/down Barronstrand Street).

    The OS 25" was surveyed in 1905, before the bank went in. If you flip between Street Map (beta) and Historic 25" you can make it appear and disappear!

    Browsing the NIAH, the oldest building on the street is from 1760, with others dating from 1830 to 1880.. No word on when these houses were first built.

    As Poole was a commercial photographer I wonder was he contracted by the Dollards to take these photographs to help support a claim against the Bank for damage caused by the construction of their new building or the demolition of the old one?. They printed their own money.....what's new! [http:[email protected]/10854357094/]

    Love the Posters in this one. This is a view from further up Barronstrand Street looking towards the Quay circa 1900. The building in question is on the right near the Clock Tower. Barronstrand Street, Waterford

    Any info on the statues atop number 39? Patron saints? I am struck by the enormous dimensions of the old growth wood planks. The outer plank shoring up the broken away facade is what? 20+ feet long x 18"w x 4+" deep. Even if here is a joint below the football poster that is still an impressive single piece of wood.

    Poster - Kilkenny v Wexford. Doesn't say if it was a friendly(!) or a championship match. A quick trawl of the www reveals: Kilkenny beat Wexford 4-4 to 1-1 in the Leinster semi in 1911 then went on to beat the Jackeens in the Leinster final and Antrim in the All Ireland semi. Then it gets interesting: The All-Ireland final between Kilkenny and Limerick is never played. The original fixture was cancelled due to the state of the pitch at the Cork Athletic Grounds. The final was postponed until the 12 May, however, Limerick refused to play in that game. A substitute contest took place at Fraher Field on 28 July. The Munster Council nominated Tipperary to play Kilkenny, with the latter winning the game by 3-3 to 2-1. Note: Final was due to be played the in February following year with the substitute match July that year,.

    [http:[email protected]] Absolutely brilliant background! For those outside Ireland, Jackeens = Dubliners or the Dublin Team. Incidentally, Jackeen existed far earlier than I ever knew (1891) until a while ago. Have a read of this... (Map lovers should enjoy it too)

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] I should have said that fthe final was scheduled for February the following year with the semis in late 1911. Presumably there was logistical problems getting teams to matches. Here's an interesting article describing getting to matches at a more local level with my Dad getting a mention.
