All the old streets in Sandy Row were knocked down years ago. Some of them were in such a bad state they actually started falling down by themselves ! I also went back in 2005 and except for a few landmarks I couldn't get my bearing at all.

Hi Bikerman. Still no luck finding Norma ? I'm surprised that no one on here would have known her.

I remember Robinson's living in the middle part of Hunter but sorry,I do not recall Norma. .depending on her age group perhaps someone like pennywhistle might remember her ,are you sure it was Hunter st., as there was Robinsons or Robertsons in Matilda st ., as well...hope someone can help!!!

When I was a student nurse in the city hospital in the early 1960,s I went to a church meeting on Sundays. It was in a hall in hunter street that at one time was a laundry. Anyway I used to call for a blind lady in Hunter street, her name was Mrs Bell. the Sundays I was working and didnt call  she just counted the windowsill along the street till she got there.

Hi John, my mother was from 22 Hunter street called Eileen Kerr and i have fond memories of growing up there as a kid. There was a shop just across the street owned by Doutsy McCrum and a place round the corner called the Model were you had to go to make a telephone call.
