Thanks Ulster Canadian and greyghost.  My family were the Smyths, who lived in No.20 and 39 in the 1910s.
Maybe when I make the big visit to Ireland I'll find a photo at PRONI.  Meanwhile I'll keep looking. 
 
but thanks again.
In 1908 & 1909  there's a William Henry Smyth living at No' 57 - occupation was a rivetter. but no smyths living at numbers 20 and 39.
 
there's no street directory available for 1910 and in 1911 there's a eliza smith living at No' 20. not sure if thats a relation or not as you can't always go by the spelling of the names as smith and smyth can be pronunced the same. 
 
and in 1912 there's a Robert Smyth living at No' 70 - occupation plumber. hope that helps.
 
if your looking anymore info from the beresford street directories don't hesitate to ask.

Hi Ulster Canadian,

Thanks for your work here (and photos) on Beresford Street.  My great-grandfather, Samuel Gamble (born ca.1865 Londonderry City, or Co.Donegal, 1901 and 1911 census), upholsterer, was living at 25, Beresford Street, according to a 1907 street directory. Do you by any chance have street directories for 1902-1906?  I have the following addresses for Samuel:
1901 census 1 North Howard Street, Wood Vale Ward
1911 census 40 Seventh Street, Wood Vale Ward
He died before his daughter, Nellie married William Stitt at St Matthias' Church of Ireland, 29 November 1914.
His son, James (born 18 Fountains Place, Londonderry, 27 Nov. 1890) was my grandfather. He ran away from the family home in Belfast in about 1904 and enlisted in the Royal Navy in January 1907, serving until 1932. He re-enlisted in 1936.

Thank you very much, Ulster Canadian, for checking 25 Beresford Street for me.  It's very helpful to know where my Gamble family weren't prior to the date that Samuel Gamble, upholsterer was living at that address.

would like to upload some photos of my family that lived in beresford street, with a little family history to go with them, but not an easy process and no explanation on how to do it. Any other forums I use allow you to browse your computer and upload from there, not the case here. Can anyone give me a step to step process on how its done here?
                                                                                       Thanks

guinty,

goto imagebam, click basic upload, choose file, select family safe and then upload, once uploaded copy and paste the BB-Code

and that's that, nice, simple and free.

The first photo shows my grandfather Lyndsay Bell he lived in Beresford street (somewhere between 10 -18). To his left is his sister in law Lillie Godfrey (nee Carleton). She is also mentioned in a previous post showing a newspaper  clipping about Bersford street. In front of my grandfather is Lillies sister Sadie. The little boy in the foreground is my grandfathers son also named Lyndsay. I have asked my mum who the girl is to the left of my grandfather and all she can tell me is her name is Madeline (is she part of your family) I think this photo would have been taken in the 1930's.
