Declan, my cousin, Jim Willis,  just started posting on here and he was born in Lake Street. I think he has some old photos of the street as well which I'm sure he would post.

My cousin in Canada told me that Declan was looking for photos of the Donegall pass area.  Here is one I took in 1982 or thereabouts in Lake street.  I'll try and post some more later this week.

This was taken looking down towards Vernon Street direction from Botanic Avenue.  Chambers street can be seen on the left hand side.
Image taken about 1982.

I have some old street directories and will look up Lake street tomorrow for Dumigan family.  I remember Murphy; O'Sullivan; Bacon; Southwell; Murphy; Williamson.  I think there was a Mrs Dumigan but my Dad [ who is almost 91 ] will remember.
I'll come back on this one.  Hope you like the photo's of the street taken just before it was demolished.  Jim

lakestreet,
your photographs are excellent and help to jog the memory, of how the streets and that area used to look.

This is Lake street in the course of being demolished.  Must have been in the 80's

Those photos are amazing. I used to frequent those areas as a student in the 70's.

That first photo is The Mary Magdaline Church Hall, Oh my goodness it is really run down from when I remember it. We lived just across from it in Lindsay Street, I move away when I was five but all my  Mums family still lived in the area so I was always back to see the Aunts & my Granny, names  Stewart & the McNallys all very into the horse's  and Carter & Coal people.
