Saw  posts from Donegall Road residents. I was born in Broadway Parade and went to St Simons school until 1950. My teachers were Miss Boyle and Miss Gurd. The Bog Meadows were a great playground in those days. Any one else remember those days?

I remember miss boyle do you remember mr Tippin and Mr Blower, my brother also went to St Simons probably around the same time as you. Yes the bogs were our playground then where we waited for the lorries going to the tip to collect the copper, brass and zine to get a few bob of the dealers. Good times

pre M1 days the gypsies lived on the bog medows and theirhorses used to wander the streets and eat the hedges in the gardens.

Wasn't the Village flooded at one time,around about Glenmachan St.  I remember Beattie's Chippy and playing football outside Windsor Pk where the ground was just earth,stones,cinders and puddles.

Beaties chippy had the best pasties only 3d.
We played football outside Windsor all the time (or it seamed like it) except when the carnival came for two weeks in the summer.
The ball would burst on the stones or glass but Percy's on the Lisburn Road sold "Wembley" footballs for 1/6d.

Thats right about the carnival. I remember now. Think it was June when it was there. More cut and skinned knees than enough got then on that aul 'pitch' and climbing over the wall at Windsor to get the ball back or onto the railway line for it. :)
