I know this is very old post, but I've just found it. Boxer1949 ...that's my family's yard on the left of the photo, John Madden and sons Painters and Decorators. It was beside Greenans Garage? It was burnt during the Internment riots.

Thanks Kevin. I have a lot of old negatives to process and lots of nice ones of the Falls. I have to scan them so its slow. When the Panton street yard was burnt, it still contained the furniture of the family's burnt out in 1969. I guess they started fresh and didnt want it. All the paint making machines were built by my grandfather Jack or John Madden. He lived in Divis Street. My granny had a wee home bakery. Great Forum.

As regards the furniture being burnt.  People who were burnt out did not have money to get new furniture and this includes my family.  I believe that your guess as to why the furniture was burnt is a myth.

Gosh Kevin it's a small world I worked with Elish years ago and she knew Angela and Owen Doherty well . Elish was a lovely woman how is she doing? I remember how She was always saying her man would have chased paper. So then Sean must be Maria brother?
