Waterford Watercolours: Hanover Street

In the middle of the last century this huge warehouse belonged to Samuel White, iron merchant, ship owner, starch manufacturer and much else. He also ran a steam mill here. Part of the premises is now an auction gallery. Now the home of the award winning Waterford Museum of Treasures.

This painting is part of a collection of watercolours of Waterford by local artist John O'Regan, commissioned by Waterford Civic Trust and sponsored by local bodies and companies. This particular painting was sponsored by Frank English Electrical.

The watercolours were published in a diary for 1992,'93 and '94 after which they were donated to the municipal art collection of Waterford City Council.
