Billy would have been born around 1947 I don't know the address. We served our time in mackies together and still keep in touch.

I worked in Mackies in 1964 as a machinist.  I ran a Milwaukee vertical milling machine.
It's not enough that we do our best;
sometimes we have to do what's required.

Hi Ericjeff, I was sent your post because the word lived was used and I am Livey on the Forum. I do not know any of the names you were asking about and I assume it was Moltke Street you were enquiring about. I came from Soudan Street and also attended Tin Top, I suggest that if you scroll far enough back through the pages you will find chatter about Tinny. Anyway welcome to the Forum and I hope you find something that you relate to.

Hi Jimmy, I went there a bit before you around 1949, we communicated on TinTop way back on the Forum. How we used to steal St Simons milk as we were passing the school on our way to tinny. Might be worth looking back probably around page 20.

Coolfin Street, Gertie Hanna, John Hanna

Does anybody have any memories of Gertie Hanna or her son John Hanna of 9 Coolfin Street, Donegall Rd? I see that John is listed in a few photos way back in this thread. On page 21 there is a picture of Mabel St School football team 1955/56 posted by VicHa. Do you know which boy is John Hanna please? Does anyone know what secondary school he attended or what his occupation was later in life?

I would appreciate any stories or memories of Gertie or John Hanna.

Thanking you.

Yes, he died late 80s early 90s, I think...Gertie died in 1975.

Do you recognise him in the photo on page 21? Which one is he? I think the tallest one, in the middle, at the back. Am I right?

Yes in the football team photo John is the boy in the middle back row, same in the coronation photo middle back row. In that photo my wife can name most of the class, she has a great memory for names.

Thank you Livey.

Bread Basket very kindly posted the death notice of Gertrude, Gertie Hanna, of Coolfin Street, died in 1975. What cemetery is she likely to have been buried in? She was Presbyterian, if that makes a difference. I searched 'find a grave' but no sign of her in City Cemetery.

Thanking you,
