Anybody know if Thorn Street and Teutonic Street were situated in old Sandy Row around the time of WW 1 ?
If they were in Sandy Row where they nearby?

Quick look at old belfast street directory (Lennon Wylie) would suggest both streets were in existence with the common link of both to Blythe Street of Sandy Row.  Hope this helps a wee bit.

Thanks for taking the time to look into that.

It does help with a theory I have with an old family mystery.

Sachs, another wee bit that might help.  Had another wee hoke there and came across another forum
subscriber.  Bit dated but he has a line or two on back in 2008 and he appears to have lived in Thorn Street.
He goes under the name of Belfast Dave on the Sandy Row thread.
