Waterford Watercolours: Coffee House Lane

These former warehouses are situated at the back of the Quay in the core of the old Viking city, not far from the old Butter Market. They are a reminder of the days when Waterford's prosperity was based on the provision trade, especially in grain, dairy produce and salted pork.

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 FAS.

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.
