I lived in the prefabs up until they were demolished in 1966. They were made of asbestos, and we used to break it up with bricks or play about with it in the lofts. Most of the early residents of Springhill took the fridges with them when they moved up there.

hi richard, do you rem mclowes paper shop? ,and the jamesons, they used to have an old garage ,one of the brothers was always in trouble with police, thats back in the 60s,

Hello, just joined as I'm looking for pictures/info - I am one of those Jamisons! (With an "I" please!)

I lived at 265-269 Shore Road between about 1972 to 1975/6, my father was Frederick ian, my grandfather was (Charles) Frederieck, and yes more than one of the Jamisons was known to the peelers I'm sure!

I would love any information or pictures from that period - my dad died in 1984, and my mum wasn't able to bring lots of our old pictures when we moved - I am also researching our fmaily tree, so any stories, pics or infor most gratefully received!

PS Does anyone remember the McCloys sweetie shop just up from the garage at 269 Shore Road?

Kind regards Margaret McGoverne (nee Jamison)

Re the bungalows on Shore Road, my mum's family lived there in the 60's - the Conways - Harry and Margaret (Red) and three daughters - Margaret, Isabell and Jennifer. My mum had a stroke in 1976 but she says she remembers the Pattersons, the Corrs, the Brannocks, Quinns, Creightons and of course the Jamisons!

If you want to see some moving pictures of the bungalows, there's a DVD called Trolleybus days in Belfast - it's 6.47 from Amazon - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trolleybus-Days-in-Belfast-DVD/dp/B0015083WQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1236692936&sr=1-1

I bought it for my mum and there's some great shots along Shore Road and going past the bungalows.

Re the families, does anyone recall the Conways or other families - I know Doris Corr still lives on Mount Vernon with her husband, and her sister Margaret I believe sadly died a few years ago.

Tates Row was further up the Shore Road where St Marys Nursery School is now
