 Titled , "The Fallen Arches".

 45 minutes long, this video by NVTV, Belfast Community TV tells the history,
 and planned future of the Newtownards Rd, Belfast.
 
 Features Norman Kennedy and Jim Patton of the East Belfast Historical Society,
 and Elma Newberry, East Belfast Partnership.

 Plenty of interesting local history.

Thankyou so very much for sharing this video - i find it extremely interesting indeed.

There was so much on the film that my parents have always told me about - many of the businesses mentioned and in photographs were recently recalled for me by my mum, which i have included on my East and South Belfast Photographs thread. Many thanks - much appreciated. Do you mind if i include the link to the film on my thread?

  Not at all Pussy,  thanks for your thanks.
  I think history is done best by the locals with personal memories.

Thanks so much - and i agree with you entirely. Lets just hope they really do build and renew the road to reflect it's history - it's heartening to hear of the plans in the pipeline.  O0 O0

 Agreed, urban decline isn't nice to see. Good to see they are planning ahead.

 By the way you didn't need to ask my permission re the link, I have nothing to do
 with NVTV, just happened to find it while surfing.

 Your good manners are appreciated anyway.

 Cheers,
 JB
