Nan -  I just came across your post back in Sept. I recall the name but can't put a face to it. When I first started working for Jim Beck it was on the Shankill Rd. before moving to other shops. Top of Legoniel Rd. Shore Rd. then on to the Old Lodge shop. My brother Howard Whyte was manager at the Templemore Ave shop.

Nan - looks like I was a couple of years ahead of you (about 1960) Jim used to move me around to fill in for people who were off sick until I found a "permanent" spot on - old lodge road -  I remember at the Legoniel shop there were two girls , very progressive of Mr. Beck back in the 50s/60s having females(only) run the store. I was there for just about a week.  I saw you were looking for friends from Hemsworth Square School and was going to let you know there is a Thread devoted to that, but I see you have already found it. - A man in Australia - "Peaser" - AKA - George Shaw  who went to Hemsworth  reconnected me to a couple of MY old friends who emigrated to Aussie, one of whom he went there with in 1964.
