Forgot about the dainty, Dimples. Also forgot about Pops. the sweet shop I was talking about was between the two. I think it was just above Shannon St. i remember seeing Tommy Jackson, Glentorn and Everton coming out of it. Yes I lived there when i was a kid for a while.

I realise this was posted a while ago, but I've only recently thought to search for Bann Street here. My grandmother was born at no.44 in 1915 and her family were still there around 1920. I don't yet know if they moved, but what a tantalising thought that she could be one of the children on this pic!  :smile:  Great photo!
This must be a rare picture as I've never seen any other pictures from bann street.

Here's a wee treat for you:  from the 1959 Street Directory.

My granny lived in No 43.  There is more information about Bann Street somewhere on the Oldpark thread in the history section.

Hi Shazza, my grandad and grandma lived at 41 Bann street in your list, the Coulters. My mum dad and brothers/sisters also lived there in the mid 60`s when i was around 4/5 years old for a short time after moving over from England, before moving up to sunningdale gardens. Used to remember the Humpfries across the road from us. Would you remember us atall.

I just seen a post about Aggie Kennedy and her tattoos. The post said she lived in the first house in Bann St. I would it call it the last house. The Moodys lived in the first house, No.1
I also remember the Scotts, Simpsons, Hollands (wee Robbie) and the Fergusons and McAuleys. Wonder where they all are now. And does anyone remember anyone else from Bann Street? Nearly forgot the Thompsons!! ::)

The late Joe Hastings from Bann Street was a survivor from the Princess Victoria which sank in the North Channel 31st January 1953, he worked as a fitter for Shorts in their Wig Bay factory in Scotland and was on his way home to visit one of his children who was ill. They moved to Rathcoole after the sinking.
