Hello, I'm new to this so bear with me. The undertakers next to Lynas' shop was called Melvilles. I remember the two elderly ladies that served you in Lynas'. I'm near sure the shoe shop was called Russells.Beside the Mayfair I remember a wee chippy, it was lovely, you know the smell of vinegar on chips type of smell.
G'day Roy.  I can go back a long way.  The shops you refire to were.  Knockers (sweet shop run by 2 sisters one called Eddy) next was Mc tiers ( bakery) then Melvilles  ( undertaker) Lynas   ( sweet shop, newspapers, and barber upstairs) next Sandy O'Hara (hardware) then Jones& Johnson's, (owned by Sam Gaston, ) Grocer, post office. Animal feed. Then Barginnis St.  I hope that is of some help. If I can help with anything about "The turn of the road or it's people, I will stretch the old memory as far as I can.
Mick.
Keep smiling

Im wondering if anyone can remember a Susannah Smith from Ligoniel? She died on the 23rd January 1950 at the grand old age of 85, she was married to William Smith.

There was a John Greer lived near the bottom of Lesley street.

The only thing that I can remember of him is that he kept ferrets and went hunting with his shotgun.

This is the memories of a 6 year old, I am now 69

The barber's name was Isaac Henderson - one of a huge tribe of Henderson's that inhabited Ligoniel and were members of the Methodist Church.
