A wonderful capture certainly brings back the memories my grand parents lived in number 39 Rowland Street their name was Martin and raised believe it or not 15 children , now the house only had 2 bedrooms up stairs and 1 pokey room down stairs i still to this day can not work it out where everyone bedded down washing and shaving and meal times must have been a night mare , there was a water tap behind the front door imagine that next door was a beer wine and spirits off licence a shop across the street and white washed houses at the opposite side of the street , they all worked when age came about and only my grandmother was at home to attend to cleaning dusting washing and dinners the young ones now a days would not know how to make a dinner it would be off to MCDonalds , thank you for this beautiful photo it is just a treasure .

Jim Stevenson my grand parents lived in 39 Rowland Street they were called Martin so my mum also came from Rowland Street my mum is 94 and I will be 70 next year , I heard the name Quinn from the street were you in the white wash cottages the little house shop on the same side as you was owned by my Great Grand Parents facing the wine store and the shop facing the wine store was called Newells .

Hi all

Isnít Rowland Street the street of houses that was moved to the Ulster Folk Museum, Cultra ??  I still love to visit this museum  :)

Not to worry Maggie P your best interests were at heart , as a grand child of my grand parents who lived in Rowland Street all their days they were the happiest days of my life , my mum is 94 and she does not know any of her 5 sons or any one else for that matter won`t talk to us but she is 94 and she is still with us the only thing she will say is I want to go home and we will answer home to 39 Rowland Street mum she will say yes .

That is sad, but great that she obviously still has happy memories of her time there.
