SAUNDER STREET, MONTROSE STREET, PARKER STREET , ST LEONORD STREET, ISLAND STREET CHURCH STREET, BELFORE STREET, SUSAN STREET , THORNDYKE STREET, DERWENT STREET, AUSTIN STREET, FRASER STREET, CONVENTION STREET, METHUM STREET,CHADOLLY STREET, FINMORE STREET, SKIPTON STREET, BRIGHT STREET, THE LIST IS ENDLESS  :unsure:

I hate to contradict you, "TWINKLE" but most of the streets you mention here are still (thankfully), in existence - not too sure about a few of them, such as Saunder Street, Convention Street (I know there's Convention Court), Fraser Street, Finmore Street - but i DO know that Derwent Street, Parker Street, Belvoir Street, Susan Street, Island Street, Bright Street, Montrose Street still exist - I ll check on the others ... i know Skipton Street doesn't exist.

Here's a few (poor) pics taken earlier this evening:











I included Roundhill Street here too because someone on the forum thought it was no longer.

I was surprised at the date on this church - the original building was replaced because it was bombed during the war.


Newtownards Rd Methodist Church

...It was the first church in East Belfast  :read: :to_clue:
