Thanks John the last time I went to see the Donegal Rd and Sandy Row was several years ago  and it hurt so much to see the old place gone very little of the Row was left only one or two shops were opened I have,nt went back there it,s to sad no one spoke to me it felt such a lonely place but by all means it would still be nice to show your daughter the area where you grew up and were you were a teddy boy Best wishes to you and your family M😃😃

ONTARIO,   IT'S BLOWING A BLIZZARD OUTSIDE AND HAS BEEN ALL DAY.   IT'S A DAY FOR STAYING IN AND COSING UP TO THE FIRE, IF  YOU HAD ONE HA,  EVEN AN ELECTRIC ONE WOULD DO.  A FEW WKS AGO MY TV WENT ON THE BLINK, NO SHAME ON IT, SO I GOT A NEW ONE, MY FRIENDS  DID ALL THE SHOPPING, I KNEW WHAT I WANTED, SIZE, BRAND, SO THEY SHOPPED AND GOT IT, MY FRIEND'S HUSBAND  PUT IT UP FOR ME, THEY REALLY ARE GOOD FRIENDS.   I AM SO DELIGHTED WITH IT.  THEY HAD LENT ME A SMALL ONE AND EVEN COMPARED TO MY OLD ONE, THIS IS LIKE BEING AT THE MOVIES HA.   I WISH EVERYONE  SAFE WALKING AND DRIVING.   TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES AND IF YOU GET A WEEEEE   MINUTE, MAYBE YOU COULD DROP  A LINE AND LET US KNOW HOW YOU ARE DOING AND WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON IN YOUR LIFE.  LIZ  XXXX

You have to upload them to a picture uploading and sharing site, either via an online picture url or from your computer, and then post the uploaded picture into your message.

"How to upload pictures to the Belfast forum"   rtf format Wordpad text file.

It can be read online, and also downloaded as an rtf format wordpad text file, or as a pdf portable document format text file.

The James Patterson in this photograph is on the top row 6th from the right. He was in my class and he was there from 1963-1968. He lived in Utility Street off the Donegal Road.
