Photo's of times past: The People's Park

The People's Park, in area about 15 acres, was laid out in the period 1855 to 1857 during the mayoralty of Thomas Blake. The park was planned as an amenity for all the people of the city hence its name. Thanks to modern improvements,, in particular the development of a children's play area, it is as popular today as it was one hundred years ago.

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.
