Photo's of times past: Dunmore East c1900

Developed as an upmarket seaside resort following the introduction of the mail packet steamers in the early nineteenth century. Thomas Gimlette who wrote the History of the Huguenots lived here in a thatched cottage. Dunmore East is arguably the prettiest seaside village in Ireland and was the setting for the highly acclaimed Maeve Binchy's TV series Echoes.

Shadows of the Past a photographic stroll through old Waterford began as an exhibition mounted by Waterford Civic Trust as part of the Tall Ships Festival in Waterford City during July 2005. The tremendous success of the Tall Ships for the city was mirrored in the success of the exhibition. The huge public response to these photographs prompted the Trust to publish Shadows of the Past.
