Just below the Ballysillan Road - https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@54.626645,-5.9657251,3a,75y,69.9h,76.26t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sV031I8v93o6HvdRb-2-rWw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Where the New Century Shop is was O'Haras and the tanning shop was Ormo
billh35 - Thanks got it! it threw me when you mentioned "the parade" I wasn't that  familiar with the shops up at the top  end of Oldpark only the ones around Cliftonville Circus :) Those google maps are fantastic  you almost feel as if you are actually on the spot

I came from Torrens Drive (1964 - 1991).  Remember the police station, June's corner shop beside the gospel hall and all the wee shops up at the circus.

went to Finiston PS and then up to the big school - Model from '76 - '81

As a wean I was in 14th BB in Oldpark Presbyterian church on the Cliftonville.
