We are in Waterford again today the home city of Mr A.H. Poole. I wonder if this is the studio where all of our fantastic Poole portraits were taken or is it just an outlet for the products we can see in the window?
Today's discussion focused on what may have prompted Poole to capture this shot of his premises on the Quay in Waterford, immediately adjacent to the historic Reginald's Tower
. Possibly it had recently been renovated - an "after" shot to compare to the "before
" also in the catalogue. In any event, while we've focused in the past on Poole's photographic studio at 34 The MalI
, we hadn't really paid much attention to his shop/outlet - which lay just around the corner at 134 the Quay. As our contributors point-out, some of the Poole images we've shared over the years were taken from the upper windows
of both these premises...
