Continuing my interest in Oldpark Rd & Walton St - are there any pictures of that area in the mid 1920's . How close is it to the Shipyards and in political terms what persuasion would its main occupants be !
My father lived and worked there in 1920's and spoke of the tough clientele ( I think from the shipyard) that frequented the pub he ran in those days. He had disbanded from the RIC and could not go back to his family because of the trouble in the south at that time.
Anybody able to point me in the direction of sources of the living environment at that time ?
Regards
