Just looking at the middle photo above c1964 referring to old Cannocks building. It appears that the area north of Patrick Street is water. Am I getting my bearings confused or is that not where the tourist office and a little park now stands? I’m assuming land was obviously reclaimed since 1964 to facilitate this. Any ideas when this land was reclaimed?
This area was initially filled in with rubble and the like around the early 1970s to form a large car park. A more permanent use for the site was found in 1988 with the construction of a river wall and the opening of a new park & tourist centre designed by Murray o Laoire which formed part of the overall Arthurs Quay SC scheme. Theres every chance the area will be up for re-development again in the near future.
