Great excitement in Library Towers today, Mary O'Leary and myself visited our boss Katherine McSharry, we had a lovely time and celebrated the milestone of reaching 30 Million views on our Flickr Stream.

Back to business, sharon.corbet believes that the shop has been newly (re)built - there's a photo from March 1912 (still called Grainger's shop and house) where there is construction going on.

She also advised that the "-ines" sign visible on the building to the left above is part of "McCormicks Harvesting Machines".

    It was still Grainger's Haberdashery in 1894.

    I think it's no. 10&11 in the 1911 census - not inhabited.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]] Your construction shot is still labelled Graingers, but the hoardings are plastered with posters saying "Important Announcement - These Premises will be Re-opened yadda yadda Gentlemen's Outfitters and Drapery Warehouse by COOKE BROS

    In the 1911 census, there are two Cookes, Drapers Assistants, in this lot. John Cooke of Kilkenny was in Waterford in 1901, too. So, John goes to Waterford, works for 10 years or more as a Drapers assistant, his younger brother Edward joins him for some years, and together they launch Cooke Bros in 1912.
