The Inglis Factory was in Bread Street off the Newtownards Road my sister worked there in there in 1951...I dont know when it was built, but it was before 1950.... :)

Are you sure it was Bread Street Monty?  I know there was a Bread St on the Falls.

There was another Englis Bakery in the Markets area of Belfast. I think it closed around 1980.
A wee bit of history O0

There is a song about this bakery called, "The Battle of Englis's Bakery."  It happened on the morning of internment 9th August 1971.  When members of the Official IRA engaged the British army in a gunbattle around the bakery.  Their leader was a man called Big Joe McCann. He was shot dead by para troopers in the Markets in April 1972 and the Official IRA called their ceasefire the following month.

there is a poster of this in the Glencree reconciliation centre in  Co Wicklow. I had a discussion there, two years ago with the German Ambassador to Ireland about it. He was interested, that I knew the man in it. and that I had worked in the Inglis bakery.
            All the best Dub.

Hi BEN 10,  I certainly do,Alex and his father Harry worked in the bakery in Eliza street and Jim worked as a motor mechanic in the Inglis Garage. It used to be in McAuley Street but was moved to Balaratt street off the Ravenhill Road.
Did you know them?
                            All the best,Dub.
