I don't think a children's nursery existed in them days. It was plants, vegetables etc.

Can't remember any horse and cart business selling them though.

Only Mr and Mrs Noble's Fruit and Veg shop opposite the Nursery!

I lived in Arhenlee Parade in the 1950s.

Let me look in my old picture collection sometime

Hi Sammy,

I moved into 4 S Parade in 2000 and sold it in 2006. The people I bought it from moved over to Ardenlee (something) can't remember exactly because I'm some years back in Canada. When I was younger our doctor was Cyril Shaw (betty Shaw) who lived in Ardenlee.

I subsequently moved down to Crawfordsburn and came back to Canada fulltime in 2002 (having been over in Canada a couple of months every year)

I lived in Oberon Street 1959-end of 1974.  Would love to see any picture of the area in 50's/60s/70s.  Sadly don't have any myself

My family lived in Glendower Street, Reid Street, and later, Ardenlee Avenue.  I attended Harding Memorial, and later Methody, along with my older sister.

Daddy Winker's Lane was our shortcut to Ladas Drive, where some friends lived.

There was a big electrical construction on the right side as you went from the Cregagh end, which i found scary when i was young...i didn't like the humming noise...

I attended Cregagh Congregational Church, and was in the Girls Life Brigade there.   A great church, full of young people.  We still attend church there when we come over from Canada.

My brother-in-law James played for Malone, and some of their matches were on the Malone grounds in the Lane.

We played hockey and tennis at Pirrie Park, which used to be Shorts and Harland's sports grounds.

If ant one can remember the RAF plane crash in Orby Road 6th October 1972. Well I work in C and C Office Supply Company where the plane crashed. Anyone any memories of this?

That was Ace Garage in Ladas Drive.....owned by Jack King and John Gillespie...in the days when garages sold petrol and carried out car repairs..it's still there( apart from the pumps )and exactly as it was in the 60s/70s....but it seems to be mainly a car wash now.

Hi Jilly.  The C and C I worked at was the Office Supply Co.  not the mineral C and C..  I was over home to Belfast in January and called up to see the staff, it was a little weird walking into the building if I'm honest, but nice to catch up with my old boss Brian Calvert.
