Hi Gingercat,

Just to let you know that I drove down the Mill Road tonight and there doesn't appear to be any plaques on the terrace that I mentioned to you before.

Have you had a look in any of the street directories?

Thank you Melonsmum for doing that- I appreciate it! Unfortunately I still havent got that map yet- PRONI have been closed for stocktaking-though I believe they open again tomorrow- so I'll give them a call then and see if I can get it. Hopefully the mystery will be solved then! :)

Regarding Erskine's Terrace.  There was two rows of terraced houses beside the Felt Works.  Today it is occupied by Patton Hire,could this be the original houses.
Hi, I was born in 1959 in 125 Shore Road, which is the first row of houses joined onto the Felt Works. My family lived there for years. My name was McTernaghan and we lived with my grandmother Catherine (Cassie) Mehaffy (nee Boyd)

Hi, I was born in Low Square which would be just opposite the bottom of the Mill Road if you know what I mean. I recall the name McTernaghan. I am sure that  my Granny's coal man lived in one of those houses I think his name was Staunton.

Hi gingercat

This article about Whitehouse Cotton Mill should interest you.

The photo shows a group of workers from Whitehouse Cotton Mill during the early 1900's.

Hi

Whoever posted the photos on the forum has now removed them from their photobucket album and as a result they have disappeared from the forum.  If you PM  the person they often put the photo back (as sometimes they arent aware that messing with photobucket also affects forums they have posted their photos in)

Hi I posted the orginal photo of the whitehouse workers.  My granny Elizabeth/Lizzie Palmer nee Tranior [linked to McAleaveys and Finnegans] and Aunt Nellie Byrne nee Trainor are in the photo.  I have the original - does anyone know of the names of people in the photo - it would be nice to have feedback.  I'll ask my dad about the Mill and see if he knows the family names.

Yes, the owners of the little grocers were the Conolly's and then the Jacksons. Take care.
