Morning Frances, sorry I wasn't able to find any more info for you.  Have you seen the information from RTB?

could you look for a Nellie Erdis (aka Mary Jane/Ellen Erdis) probably from north belfast possibly Barbour Street. Also looking for any info. on an Alexander Hall at this time Belfast or  Bangor. Thank you in anticipation.

BARBOUR STREET - only a small street, but no-one by the name of Erdis living there in 1959.
ERDIS - can't find anyone by this name in the directory
HALL Alexander, bookseller - 33 Cromwell Road
HALL Alexander, clerk - 32 Gainsborough Drive
HALL A, PO Official - 5 Abercorn Street
HALL A, clerk - 7 Bloomfield Road
HALL A, chemist - 52 Ormonde Park, Finaghy

Hi Mrs M

EWART'S ROW

115 - Occupied (doesn't give any other info)

It's a very long street - 1-117 and 48-114, anything in particular you'd like to know about the street?
I'm happy to type all the names if you like, let me know.

I think Carbolicsoap has a 1955 street directory.  Maybe there will be a name against No 115 in that directory.
