Val.Think that was part of it too with me. I liked the jiving. Was never great at it,but did my best,and it was a treat to watch those who were good at it. Hunter St arch seemed to be all the go at that time. Maybe because of the music and the dancing they had there. The Teddy Boy days. :smile:

Great memories Rabrow, that's for sure. ..Val  ;)

Good evening Harry, just spotted the red card from "UC"! :sorry: Better leg it to the proper thread:imagine the wee apprentice (poster) clipped 'round the ear lug by an "oul hand".Last post it is then in this thread but re Primitive Street,only Miss Luke ticks the box.Remember though Miss Porter,Mr.and Mrs.Jackson,Mr.Burns,Jim Newell and another nice (younger ) man whose name evades me.He got our wee class a private visit to the Fire Brigade Station in Chichester St. and one Christmas,gave us all a new muffler.I gave it to my granda as he worked outdoors.My granny got the Sunday School prizes,all "picture texts" but I held on to the Bible.Arthur Parker was the Superintendant during nearly all my time there.Bettter "float" in case the foreman nabs me! Once again,"sorry" UC.

Just looking though the Sandy Row book and in the photo of the Lambeg drummer there is a fella standing watching who got the nickname 'battler'. I can remember him and then there was Moss Peel. Some of them used to stand at the corner of the Clock Bar. I remember a Murphy who use to stand there sometimes, His sister married Bobby Mark,now in Blackpool.

I'm enjoying the old photos.  Here's a photo of one of the old lampposts on the Boyne Bridge.

'It was widened in the 30ís and still has these unusual lampposts. Similar ones are to be found on the railway overbridge near Roden Street on the Donegall Road'[/size]

Hi Billy. You mentioned you had seen Valerie Lavery. I have been looking for her on Facebook but I couldn't find her. Good to know you have seen her about recently. I ent you a message with my e-mail address. Still can hardly believe I have found someone from Sandy Row who actually remembers me. I was never out of McDowels shop on the corner :D

Hi Andy ... You are right it was Harry Armstrong.   I used to go to Sunday School there at Matilda Street Gospel Hut.   ... and I used to work for Harry's son, Bobby after school and at the weekends.   Sorry didn't know Bob Anderson.    When I did drink it was usually at "The Lily" or "The Moyola" ... not the most respectable of bars, But ...    And, andy, you are not the oldest ... I am 78 and counting.   But if you hang on long enough you could become the oldest ... but there are no prizes
Have a great day

Hi RabRow   I knew Battler ... and knew Moss Peel well ... I used to stand at that corner with these guys at one time... as did my brothers: Davy, Tommy, Josey and Jimmy Gorman.   There were a lot of Murphey's around there ... don't know the one you mention;   There was Sammy Murphy: lived in Eureka St. then moved with his family to Teutonic St.     Then there was Danny, Jamsey, Billy, Henry Murphy in Matilda Street.   Then there was wee Spud Murphy in Scott St.     Any of them familiar?
