Silvergrove Street
« on: May 04, 2011, 09:13:43 AM »
I lived in Silvergrove Street in the 1950s / 60s. There was Beech St. Spruce St. Pine St. All gone now. Does anyone else remember that part of Belfast - Donegall Pass, Shaftesbury Square ?

My granny, Annabella Spiers, lived for years at 36 Silvergrove St., also my Aunt Ena Robinson
bought a house two doors up from granny's.  I spent a lot of time at their parlor houses
when I was growing up.  That was during WW2 thro' to the l950's.  At present, I can only
recall the Gilmore family, but when the old grey cells get going I'm sure I'll remember some
other family names.  Granny used to send me for milk and bread to the wee shop on the
corner of the street.

Sorry, Ashleigh, that name doesn't ring a bell.  Hopefully, it will for some of our other posters.

From the 1943 Belfast street directory for Silvergrove Street, courtesy of the Lennon Wylie website, I wonder if related:

25. Bishop, J., carter
