brilliant photos rathlin. i havent seen any of these before. this was my grannys shop after she moved from ardoyne, sometime in 1940s. that was before i was born,  i knew it much later as johns shop when i was young,   there was a little spoon shaped hanle on the door and when ypu pressed it down to open the door a bell would ring, i remember thinking it would have been the same handle in my grannies time. 
lovely memories of clonard rathlin. i've only seen one of leoville st where i was born, did you take any of leoville st?  thank you rathlin.

Hi there,
 
I noticed you mentioned your granny was a McCabe.  Going back, (I'm doing family research), I have found a Daly marrying a McCabe and in fact, have a print out of a grave that a McCabe purchased and there are quite a few in it.  If you are interested, I can let you have a copy.

   Top Picture, first house on  the right, and bottom picture also, No, 66 Kashmire Road, where my cousins the Kings lived till about 1967/68, then moved to the house next to the Bank on the Springfield Road - top of the Collin streets. Anyway, No 66 was as oddly shaped inside as what it looked outside - especially at that alley / gable end - with all it's nooks and cranny's we spent hours inside playing hide and seek!
 
FANTASTIC SNAPS RATHLIN!  Thanks for posting memories from all our yesterdays! :good: :clapping:
I only got drunk, I never got stupid!

Hi Jus,
 
I managed to copy the document, went into preview to check and promptly lost it! 
 
Trying again!
