April 23, 1915
In a fine example of "You can't keep a good company down", here is Hearne's temporary new shop on the quayside in Waterford, in business exactly 3 weeks after a devastating fire on Friday, 2 April.
The Great Fire Salvage Sale was for 4 days only, and began on the day this photo was taken.
The boat behind Hearne's shop has been identified by ofarrl as the Portlairge, a steam dredger known around Waterford as the Mudboat:
"Built in 1907 by the Dublin Dockyard Co. she was the last working steamship in Ireland when she was retired in 1980."
Date: Friday, 23 April 1915
