Sunnyside Bungalows
« on: May 19, 2010, 10:59:00 PM »
Can anyone who remembers Sunnyside Bungalows tell me exactly where they were, what they were like and when they were demolished?
 
I'm really fascinated because I think I'm living now on part of the site where they used to be. Are there any maps or photographs anywhere? I would be so grateful for any information.

Thanks, Giannineo, I found that thread and very interesting it was too but when I tried to add to it there was a notice there saying that as it was more than 120 days old I might like to consider starting another thread, so I did.
 
So the bungalows were where the Annadale Flats and Hampton Court Village are now?

jay, the bungalows were  beyond the street of the Annadale flats which look over the river and across the bridge when you turned right on to the embankment... demolished around early 60's I think..I will try to find a map and give you a better indication    the ones south of the Lagan were opposite Hampton  and in front of Annadale flats..iy you went straight across the Lagan from Annadale flats you would have been at the other ones on the embankment...they backed on to Botanic Gardens

I had a friend who lived there (Billy Steel) in the early seventies just before they were demolished. If you were heading in the direction of the Lagan I think they were on the left and right of Sunnyside street Right at the end before the embankment

Andy I think the family moved to Craigavon. I havent seen him forty years. He was a nice guy. Are you talkingabout the father or the son. The son would be around 54?

billy steel did move to craigavon, he opened the first shop in the ardowen estate. billy the dad is dead. not sure if the son is still living in craigavon.
at first billy had an ice cream van which was loaded with grocery's and he drove around the estates selling his goods until he opened the shop in ardowen.

 
was there bates who lived in the sunnyside bungalows ?
