Who do you know from the Market
« on: November 12, 2011, 11:50:05 PM »
Got a lend of this pic to-day in the PD Club. A well known Market man (the only one I know in the photo)  from a well known Market family, eating the food. Looks like a publicity shot.  Recognize anyone else in the photo?

Cannon...It's Freddie Webb (Rea) Willie's older brother. It looks like a press shot prior to a fight. Possibly Jackie Wilson for the NI Area Middleweight title. The other man would probably be the opponent.

Yes...Harry was Willie's brother. He went to England and boxed professional under the name Ray Henry. I think he died in England, This is the only picture I have of Harry, It's from an old yellowed newspaper cutting. Harry was a good looking guy, taller and heavier than Willie. A group of Market guys. Harry and Junior Morrison among them used to sing harmonies at the street corner, and they were really good, Belfast's first boy band.

A bit late but good enough to eat at any time of the year. Dolly's baking skills are a tradition now on the Forum...

kate, first I was shocked to learn that Willie was dead. We were very close as my friend went out with him for years. Often wondered what happened to them both. Very sad indeed. :(
