Request: 19th century Falls Road and 194/196 North Street
« on: November 28, 2010, 03:55:27 PM »
Is anyone able to provide a picture of the Falls Road between 1850 and 1910?
 
I'm researching two HODGSON brothers, one catholic and one protestant. My GGGrandfather, Alfred Hodgson deserted his wife in Scotland and lived for five years in Belfast with a woman named Elizabeth Cummings. His last known address was Weir Street in 1889.
 
His brother, Edmund Hodgson lived from at least 1877-1899 on the Falls Road where he and his family had shops and houses at various times at numbers 36, 48, 56, 58, 60, 62 and 87. He was also the owner of a bar named "The Rising Sun" in North Street from about 1888 to 1895.
