Know as Jeanette Cameron when I lived in 121 Church Street East, before moving to Tullycarnet, then on to Canada and the USA.

To IRISHAL, I received your email and it brought back memories of having teachers like Scott and Harison.I didn't appreciate just how good they were until I had to make a living.My name is Jim Johnston and I lived in Grove Street East.I left Elmgrove in 1951.I'm not sure but I think I remember some one called Lorimer at that time

I currently live in Rochester Michigan but spend the winters in Florida.I'm very familiar with California as that is were I immigrated to before enlisting in the US Air Force.I spent a few years in Sacramento then went to the Far East and finished up near San Bernadino  Both my son and daughter are Californians  but there work keeps them in Michigan.When I was working I made a lot of trips to the L A area and liked it very much. Since you are from the old neighbor hood do you remember Bills Milk Bar at the top of Aveniel Road?
We loved having pie and beans there on the way home from a dance.
Good to hear from you.
Jaunty.

I grew up in the Knock/Ormiston area & wondered if there is anyone out there from the same area??!!

Although we are only in France now, we rarely go back to Belfast due the lack of direct flights & the fact that I won't put the cats in a cattery again!!  I'm a big softie!!  :yes:

I was born in Castlereagh, but I left Belfast when I was four, so I don't remember much of my life in Belfast.  I remember a little, but not a lot!
