 Thanks Rosser, appreciate it, on the 1939 map it dont show it. Nearest street mensioned is Bainsmore st, and Mountcashel st on the other side of the road, and Elswick st on Pollard side.  The Franklin laundry is shown around the bend.  Workman Ave is just a dotted line.

 Does it bring back memories Al.?

Looking up the Springfiled to your left. Elswick St , Tennyson St, Forth River Gardens, Pollard St Maurice St. On your right Mayo St, Ainsworth Avenue, Mountcashel St and Bainsmore. Fortriver was opposite and between Mountcashel and Bainsmore. There was no pub there was Mc Governs Shop.

We had a grocers/greengrocers at the corner of Forth River Gardens, although our address was 314 Springfield Road. It was bombed out in the early 70's.

I remember the Gunnings from no 7 well - I was friendly with Maire Gunning, they moved to Crawley in Sussex.

I also remember Molly and Brendan Lamb who lived there but their names aren't on that list ???

Sadly Forth River Gardens is no longer there, I took a walk up the Springfield last year when I was home and the street was gone, brought a tear to my eye :'( :'(
