Try to find the date or year when this image was made.
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: POOLEWP 0478

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/swordscookie] 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... :)

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] 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!!

    Aha! The Market House (see note) - "the building was there during the 1798 Rising and like most of Enniscorthy was originally the property of Porthsmouth Estate. The present facade was developed in the latter part of the 19th century. ... " From www.enniscorthy.ie/ec/HeritageTrail/ So when did the Market House grow to three storeys? Only two here ...

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Brilliant, so this photo is definitely pre-1908 when the third storey was added to the Market House! http://www.flickr.com/photos/beachcomberaustralia

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] And while fashion is not as reliable as a missing bell tower, don't forget http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] says Eliza Doolittle in the middle of the market there "is wearing a hat and style that began in the early 1890s"... P.S. Love this eating away at either side of dates! Thanks.

    Are Passion Plays popular today in Ireland? They are not as popular in the states as they were when I was a kid.

    On the Cathedral collection: the NIAH says: Completed, 1872-3. Reroofed, 1936. Consecrated, 1946. Renovated, 1970, with sanctuary reordered. Restored, 1994. Interior including vestibule (south) retaining tessellated "quarry tile" floor; square-headed door opening into nave with glazed timber panelled double doors having overlights; full-height interior open into roof restored, 1994, with choir gallery on pointed-arch tripartite arcade supporting Gothic-style timber pipe organ (1894) So no major work from 1872 to 1936 except the pipe organ in 1894 - a possible reason for the collection? But maybe they were still collecting money to pay off the building of the cathedral itself?

    #4 is Daniel Jordan in 1901 and 1911. #5 is John Lynch in 01, Patrick O'Dowd in 1911. #6 is Bridger Hore in 01, Edward McHeavey in 1911. In the image, #5 is Whelan - I think we are before the 1901 census.

    For what it is worth, next door in the catalogue was guessed at about 1895: Main Street, Wexford by Poole Studios
