I used to live on the Rosebery Road and i remember the Magees son Johnny. I also remember The Regan family, they lived a few doors down from my Aunt (Cassie Boyd). Mary Meli's chip shop was frequented by everyone in the area and to this day you cant get a pastie like Mary's.
What a friendly, neighbourly area it was, no one cared what you were, everyone helped everyone else.

As a kid i used to be left in the care of cassie in ardenvour st, think the name cassie colgan comes to mind, halfway down, then the magees were one from the end near carlingford st. i used to call there on the way to school at lagan village but can rememer who for. but do remember the name johnny mc gee,think he was in my older sisters class.
regards.

yeah went to lagan village, first teacher was miss okane, then miss mc gurr i think. managed to get out b4 the dragon in the last room though felt her wrath once in the corridor when late.

remember the gas mantles for light and the big gas fire to dry your coats. there was a kitchen to boil water for hot oxo cubes in plastic mugs. no health and safety [censored] then.

Round the corner from richardson st was a chewing gum machine which coughed out twice every 4th go for a penny, there was a scrum to get in for the extra packet of beech nut.

A chum in my class lived round the corner in glentoran st but the name escapes me.

remember a few names from the strand who went as well.

happy days mate.

Olelad ive scanned the 2 pages of the 1969 street directory for creaghy road will try this one first you will probably have to right click and save it to your desk top then when you view it on your own pc you can enlarge it
