Hi does anyone remember two guys who are twins lived off the Donegall road about 25 years back, one was called Raymond nickname “chubby”.  Think he was married to a girl called Isobel for a time? Think they actually lived Donegall ave, would be late 40’s early 50’s now?

The barber shop on the corner of colchester street was john maxwells.  Dont know if he was still going at that stage.  The next shop front going back at one stage was goldie the dentist and then the boarded up shop at one time was helen and allans newsagents.  The corner shop in my time was Baxters the chemist.The corner shop on the other side of barrington street i dont know.  Memories.

Hi Edwina:

When was your dad born?  I was born in 88 Soudan Street 1945.

Jimmy.  I didn't know the Weirs.  When was Billy born, and where on Soudan St did he live?

Dad was born June 3, 1931. His younger sister June, born 1944, married Harris Gowdy, and they lived in Ebor Street. Other families who lived in Moltke Street were Clifford and JeanThompson, the Watsons, the Hursts, the Whites to name a few.
