I remember   Inglis  bakery and shop  between East Bread St. and Bloomfield Ave.   My ma used to send me down to the shop to get in line as we had the ration books in the early 40,s.

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.

Inglis isn't an Irish surname. I wonder where the family lived prior to coming to Belfast or even prior to coming to Ireland

Grfiffith's Primary Valuations list four people with the Inglis surname ...

George Inglis, Gortalowry, Derryloran. Tyrone
George Inglis, Carnave, Tickmacrevan. Antrim
James Inglis, Clontarf West, The Cresent, Clontarf. Dublin
William Inglis, Sallymount, Cullenswood Terrace, Donnybrook. Dublin

Hi Boxer 1949, I remember it well. The only remedy left was to smash the downpipes  high up , all around  the outside of the building to prevent the lead thieves from scaling up onto the roof from the street down below.

Christoper, there was an Inglis on the board of Johnston Mooney and O'Brien's bakery in Dublin around the 1880s.
