James ,the pictures may have been taken in the quadrangle at the windows of the old cookery or science classrooms of the old Linfield Intermediate School where I and probable some of your family attended a long time ago though it seems like yesterday to me.

Boobs I was thinking the girls photo is kelvin but I can't help thinking the football team is the last year at a primary school. I'm thinking of tin top their colours were red and blue.

Jimmy, both photos are from Blythefield Primary school. I was speaking with one of the girls in the photo who I know and she confirmed it.

Liz,My young sister would look after my children while mammy and I nipped into Sandy Row to shop, then when she got married she joined us , it was lovely, the Row was always teeming with people and everybody knew each other ,so someone  always said hello or stopping  you to have a yarn ,one family in particular the Curliss girls would call us the' Dolly sisters',honestly Liz,looking back ,I preferred those time to life now ...there isn't the same camaraderie.,, people seem to be happier walking along looking at their mobile phones, .maybe its just me getting older and having a wee moan though!!!!Anyway Liz have a happy Easter and God blessxxx

NO BOOPS YOU'RE RIGHT, PEOPLE  WALK ALONG WITH THEIR NOSES IN THOSE PHONES, I'M SURPRISED THEY DON'T WALK INTO A LAMP POST, SORRY DO THEY STILL HAVE THOSE HA.    EVEN WALKING DOWN TOWN YOU ALWAYS MET SOMEONE  NO MATTER WHERE YOU WENT AND STOPPED FOR A FEW MINUTES TO SAY  HA.  THE ONLY TIME THEY STOP NOW IS IF THEY HAVE BUMPPED INTO SOMEONE  TALKING INTO THEIR PHONES.  I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A HAPPY EASTER TOO.  GOD BLESS.  LOVE LIZ XXX

I came on to this thread at one stage with a question about accordion bands and was reading through some of the memories and accounts of the place, the times and the characters. There was a guy [at least I assumed it was a guy] who had written some very good pieces - at times humorous or quite serious and touching. I always thought he could have been a good Belfast short-story writer but I haven't seen anything by him for years. In fact, I think I said in a couple of posts that he should sit and work on a few serious drafts of stuff. 'Pennyfeather', I think. Anyone know if he ever did any writing?
