It also reminds me of several places.  It looks a little like the road coming down from Hannahstown Hill.  It could also be the Budore Road - but I'm really just guessing and I'm not really helping am I?

Thank you for the replies.

Am thinking it was probably around Beragh, Tyrone, that's where the family originated from before moving to Daphne Street Belfast.

Hi Skylark,

Sent a copy of you photo off to a friend in Tyrone, near Beragh but did not ring bells as being around the Beragh area.

He mentioned, like others, that it could be anywhere, but he seemed to think that it looked like around MANORCUNNINGHAM  Co Donegal. He is in turn going to speak/show the photo to somebody else and get back to me.

When I first seen this photo,the first thing that sprung to mind was the Hillhall road in Lisburn.As with the photo below the background looks the same, although you cannot see it in the 2nd picture.

What do you think?





I know the first picture has the roofs at different levels,but the cottages were renovated sometime in the 90`s and i recall work being carried out to the roof levels.Same amount of chimneys and doors etc,the brown chimney in the second picture belongs to the next door property.

I`ll try and get a picture tomorrow of the cottages from the same angle as the first picture.

That's out towards Lisburn isn't it?
If you don't do it you won't get caught.

Hi, I can tell you honestly that the cottages on the Hillhall Road, in Lisburn is not the same place as the photo you have.  I know the person who owned and renovated the cottage and I know it has always had a thatched roof, there is a preservation order on the cottages so it has to remain relatively the same. Doors, windows, roof and chimneys. It would have been nice if it had of been the same place but sadly not. I hope this has shed some light on the mystery. :-*

Do you have a higher resolution scan? Some features which may help in the identification will not be apparent unless there's more detail.
