Hi All
 photos of Albertbridge /Mountpotinger are great. The pictures also show how much local shopping there were in those days.Clancy McDermotts and Holy Joe Shannon's were the local pubs .As well as Bar 40 aka Hunt & Hinds

carolw:thank you so much for the great pics. if you look at the third picture you can see a big stone as kids it was a big climb for us, viewed as an adult it seemed to have shrunk. a barman who worked in the pub at the stone was p.j. maguire, he now works in a bar called d.j.renolds in 57th st.lower manhatten n.y. he loves to spin yarns about the old area when i,m over and call in for a pint.

I have'nt been on the forum for a while. I love all these old photos. Does anybody remember an Aggie Brennan from Foundry street, she was a dealer in old clothes, and was always seen with with a big bag over her shoulder. She was my granny's sister, but I am old enough to remember her.  I also new a family in Middlepath street, they were called Harmon. There were 5 girls and 2 boys, I know a few of them are still around.
