Hi Ginger, thanks for the response, the only one left from the Guy's is my Aunt Mary (Ferguson). Davey, Agnes, Geordie, Sammy , Jean and my mum (Teenie) have all passed away. Mary still lives in Hornby Street off Albertbridge Road. did you live in Skipton Street or were you like us and visit family that lived there, I remember getting in trouble form my Granny for urinating on her whitewash walls out the back I was only 5 years old then hahahaha :D . anyway good to hear from you

I lived in hunt st in the 50s and can remember looking out my back bedroom window and seeing the firebrigade coming out off the firestation at the corner off skipton st sounding its we bell dingaling,, in the early 70s the firestation became a joiners workplace, i think it was called rodgers or something like that, can anyone tell me did the place once become a car sales place possibly citroen in the late 70s early 80s, my son seems to remember it but i cant?

I remember the Citroen garage VT but think it was further down the Albert - although still on the same side as the fire station.

My Grandmother, Florence (Flo) Fleming was born on Skipton Street. I have her in the 1911 census as 8 years old living in No 24. She later married Francis (Frank) Barnes from Bloomfield Avenue. A bit far back for living memory but I would love to hear more about the area around that era. Glad I found this site, great resources and on line community

Yes, there was a Citreon Garage there for quite a few years. I was away all of the 70's so I don't know when it opened. I remember the joiners before that we used to go there for window glass, the stuff with the wire through it.
