Photo's of times past: Jarveys wait in hope c1915

Scene at Custom House Quay opposite the jetties used by Clyde Shipping Company vessels, some of which had passenger accommodation. The eager faces suggest a cross-Channel steamship has just arrived with the prospect of fares. Note the name "Whitty" on the nearest car.

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.
