There way a Mayfair Bakery on the Woodvale Road.

behind the counter all the buns where on display with a plastic number like you'd find on a door.You'd go in and ask for two of No. 3 ...four of No.7 ,etc etc. and they'd be tonged into a paper bag , all high tech stuff for the day. Remember diamonds and snowballs , always hated the files graveyard the currant bun yuck. Thanks PM....I had forgotten about the Mayfair bakery.

aye arder I remember Peter's Hill bathes well , you'd walk in the door and the chlorine would melt your eyes balls out. The changing traps either side of the pool with their twin wee benches for getting your kit off. If you got right at the pools edge and looked up you might have got a flash of a wee dolls nickers.
Looking back to those days ,there must have a lot of dirty auld men who hung about places like that.

I'm not sure whether this was in Peters Hill or the Shankill but I remember as a child being in a shop that put your money in a cage and it went flying along the ceiling on a pulley system...it might have been a hardware shop.
Memories they can't be bought,they cant be won at carnivals for free,it took me years to get those souvenirs and I don't know how they slipped away fr

Allymac, yes I remember Jaffa furs, they were "way down" the Shankill, opposite Diamond Street. That's where I bought my furs!!  (I don't think)  Makes you wonder, how many furs they would have sold on the Shankill??
     Jaffa Furs later moved to Queens Arcade would anyone remember Dr Richie

He was very good not only to the people of the Shankill Road but the Falls Road also

Bob Stewarts the barbers just below Brady's Lane.
He was the first automated barber in the world.....you took the numbered wooden disc inside the door and got called when it was your turn...but you could wait for "your" barber if you wanted.
Down the "washers" in Peters Hill baths on a Friday and a short back and sides with a bit off the top and a square neck in Bobby Stewarts ready for a big weekend.
