From the disinterested spectators and understated glamour of Bridge Street in Coleraine to the down to earth trading of vegetables and sundries in Clonmel. Gladstone Street has surely changed it's name by now and no doubt there are many of the shops that have changed also?

    Still Gladstone Street! Could well be wrong; the new 1901 Post office is not yet there? goo.gl/maps/y7z384tCuB57Eojt9

    According to the census, there is an apprentice carpenter resident on Gladstone street, but I don't see any walruses.

    Street names are an interesting mix, there is Gladstone, Nelson, Sarsfield and Wellington as well as King Street and Queen Street, but also O'Connell, Parnell, Emmet.

    Clonmel street directory 1889. Condon, Ml, baker, 9 Gladstone st. M'Cuaig Bros, Grocer, 5 Gladstone st. Hunter J. & Sons, Seed Merchant, Gladstone st? Peacocke Jas, Gladstone st.? I could be convinced I see Kennedy Chandler in #9 beyond the seed merchant on left, not in the 1890 directory.

    1901 census seems to let us down today, Gladstone St. is only Part Of, and missing all the low numbers.

    Condon is at #7 here and in the later clearly after 1901 shots, so I think we are after 1890 (when it was M not P Condon, and in #9, not #7). P seems to be a butcher, while M was a baker. EDIT There is a Condon, Patk, in the 1890 directory, Victualler, Gladstone Street. No help.

    Backing through the catalogue I find L_CAB_06915, the Grand Hotel Greystones looking fresh - built 1893-4.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/gnmcauley Not too dissimilar to the English town where I grew up. There was a Gladstone St (where I was born), and nearby a Parnell St. Whoever named the streets must have had a thing for free trade - Bright St, Cobden St and Cecil St were all nearby. Further afield were a Nelson St and a Wellington St. Gladstone Street is a common enough name that at one time (circa 1960) my mother and her two sisters all had an address in Gladstone Street, but in 3 different towns.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/johnspooner I see some street name changes from the 6" of 1840ish: Gladstone St. was called Johnston St. Parnell St. was called Bagwell St. Sarsfield St. was called Duncan St. O'Connell St. was called Main St. Nelson and Wellington were there in 1840, of course.

    In fact, for the birth of daughter Ellen in 1881, baker Michael Condon is living on Johnston Street!

    This history page says the street was renamed Gladstone Street in 1886.
