Crimea Street Belfast
« on: October 13, 2008, 10:08:58 PM »
My Mother came from Crimea Street in the Shankill area, she left in the early 60's when she met my old man who was from Glasgow.

Any posters on here from Crimea Street or the surrounding area, her name was Betty Lang.

Hi Stevie

My granny came from Crimea St and her family still lived there into the 70's; their surname was Scott. I can remember her brother Arder (Arthur) and sister Sarah still living in the family home when I was a youngster.
