JJ,  I don't remember Huddleston's. but I do remember a chippy on the corner of Berlin st, I worked in Millford before coming to Canada 1967 and a few of us would get a Pastie  and eat it on the way home.  :) those were the days :D

Huddleston's was in Tennant Street on the left hand side, going towards the Crumlin Road, just up past Upper Riga Street. I don't remember a chippie at the corner of a Berlin Street but I do remember a chippie at the corner of Tennant Street and Sydney Street West ?  :)

Hi Harry, the family are all well thank you. it nice to see you and river rats drop in, I miss all the old chatter. Bobby is on FB and is trying to get me on it, I do sneak  in sometimes but I still enjoy the Forum. Take care. :-*
Thanks for the nod. Does any one remember the double footpath at the top of lawn brook avenue I think it was because the drop was so big to the road.
We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars

Huddleston's chippie I was the playmate of Jim the son. Does any one remember standing on the seat of the top cubical to see over the counter and jims dad would give you a wee poke of chips as a treat. I bet no one would do that now.
On a Friday and Saturday night the cubicles would be full  they even gave you bread and butter for a sit down supper. Your parents would say don't be drinking that coke so quick as you wont get another. and to top it all it was a wee warm bottle of coke.
My friends uncle give us 10 shillings to go and buy two chips and wanted change that's 50p to you.
what was on the menu fish chips and pasties that was it and the queue was up Tennant street at the weekend.
Happy days.

Yes indeed it was a toss up between Huddlestons and Beatties for the best fish. MaMas did great chips, pasties and mushy peas, not to mention their great ice cream, as well. Their 'Knickerbockerglorys' were legend.  ::)

Yes, I remember the double footpath there. To be avoided, especially if one was 'three sheets to the wind'. Lol  :D

Brian- my Great-Grandfather Alexander Burrows lived at 106 Carnon Street but a lot earlier in 1916. He had sons called Walter (1906 ish, John Alexander and Henry (Harry) and a daughter Mabel). There may be a link between our families somewhere?
my grandfather was John Alexander Burrows he was born in 1908 he died in 2002 aged 94

Hi all, I am new, only signed up today.
I was adopted as a child and now live in England.
I am trying to trace my original Irish family and came across your website.
My grandfather was called William Herbert McQuitty.
He was a soldier in the British Army and I think he may have lived at 186 Conway Street in the 1930's.
I believe his father was called Robert McQuitty.
William married an English girl, Irene Muncaster, in 1939 prior to shipping out for WW2. I'm led to believe that he survived the war, but separated from his wife sometime later.
Unfortunately that's all the information I have.
Is anyone possibly able to give me any pointers ?
Thanks
GaryL
