PW, I remember Nabney's very well - corner of "The Albert" and Templemore Avenue.  Around 1960, I was with my mother when she put on lay-by for Christmas (or put aside, or whatever they called it in those days), a blue "Grand piano and stool" for my youngest sister who was 2 years old.  Nabney's had all sorts of lovely stuff, at least to me at that time, at the age of 13.   ;)
KC.........as I look  at  this  photo  of  Nabney's   I  can  just  see  us  walking  on  down  there on Templemore  Ave, and  stopping  off  at  Als  aunts  in Martin  street  then going  on  up   to  the Newtownards  and  going  to  his  Mums  on  Susan  street  around  67-70  all happy  memories

Colleen, I can see you, I can see you!  :D  I always thought Templemore Avenue was a lovely street.  It seemed quite a wide street to me and there were some nice houses and trees. I learned to swim in the baths there and used to go regularly.  :)

   There is a video on You Tube showing the Regal accordion band With Geordie Cassidy etc. At the Orange parade you probably could get some stills from that

Agreed Una, I seriously hope someone, somewhere is archiving all of this, for in a hundred years time, some of the experiences, memories, photos, etc. posted on the Belfast Forum will be a gold mine for our descendants.

Have only just joined and am so happy Ive found this forum. The house on the right was my Granny and Grandas house and on the left was Tommy Wiers........ there used to be a big yard on both houses as Tommy and my Granda were carters. I would really love a copy of this photo if possible. Thanks

Does you think that this could possibly be the late 1950's...My mum used to ride the elephants during that time period and I'm wondering if this could be her...I did have photos of her but sadly they've been misplaced...there was also one taken of the whole circus outside a town hall with a mayor but I haven't got a clue which town as the name was on the back with the photographers stamp
Garmoyle Street, Sailortown. Chipperfield Circus. Year unknown.
