Does anyone remember the Curry family who lived in Roden Street from the 30s up until the 70s?  Stanley, Norman, Edmond, Sammy, David, Jim and Lily.  Jim drowned on the Princess Victoria in 1953. 
I'd be interested to hear from anyone who grew up with or knew my grandfather Curry.

Does anyone remember Trevor Rodgers from Roden Street. His mother made the most fantastic rock scones. His dad was one of the nicest men I have ever met.

I served my apprenticeship with Trevor. Des

I used to walk up and down Roden Street twice a day on my to and from Kelvin school. I only remember a girl called Brenda who lived across from the school gates as she was in my class.

I remember a shop on Roden St where my Granda took me to get sweets on the way to Windsor, "Castles" I think was the name.
I remember a news item one time where twins died on the same day although miles apart, I think one of them died in a fishing accident, as far as I remember they were the shop owners sons.

Hi there,
Would anyone on this know anything of a Robert Gregg who lived here in I would imagine the 1950s-1970s?
I know it's a long-shot but I figured it's worth a try.

My Uncle Alfie had a shoe repair shop in Roden Street, pretty far down from the Donegall Road on the right hand side of Roden Street and I think if I look thru me old fotos there might be one of him in his wee shop. I still remember the smell of the "solution" they used to glue on the heels and soles of the shoes. Uncle Alfie passed on some years ago now but I often wonder what Roden Street is like - might have to check it out on Google maps street view.

THE shoe shop i lived a few doors from it and your right there was a lovely smell from it ,but aways remembered a faimly liveing at the back of the shop called LEE,
