    This photo was commissioned by a Miss A. Power of 43 Roanmore Crescent or 43 Roanmore Park in Waterford. Thanks to desmondg47, we now know this photo was taken outside the entrance to the Pugin designed Presentation Convent building on Slievekeale Road, Waterford, now a health centre.

      Thanks for the address. I like to look them up on Google Earth. Roanmore Park empties into a roundabout; probably the "crescent"? But the homes were probably different, and changed now.

      Not sure, Richard, that this house was on Roanmore. May have been another location, with the photo being ordered by Miss Power who lived in Roanmore OR this house may have been demolished in the interim period. Couldn't find anything like it on Google Maps. It'd be great if any Waterford peeps could add more information...
      p.s. check out Google Maps for the Patrick Street photo uploaded next. The entrance to McDonalds cuts through the beautiful Woodford Bourne sign

      Thank you!
      I figured this was a school, or church out building. Very nice house!

      This photo was taken at the entrance to the presentation convent in Slievekeale Waterford, a building beautifully designed by AWB Pugin and now in use as a medical centre. Its worth going to see!
