 My Auntie Minnie lived in Wolff Street and if this does indeed show it (it's so long ago) the observer would be looking up towards the Newtownards Road with Seaford Street opposite.
 
I was born a few years after my sister was killed as a result of a traffic accident in Wolff Street, an incident my father never really got over. For the rest of his life he always wore a black tie should he have been going out anywhere.
 
My maternal grandmother Lizzie McMicheal often did battle with the residents of Seaford Street in times of 'tension' and generally as a result of some parade or other.
 
It's a bloody shame that age dims the ability to recall with any degree of greater clarity - sadly. O0

That level of detail I couldn't manage Micky, but I do remember that end of the Newtownards Road being populated with a fair few shops and I think I'm right in saying that the 'Pop' cinema was quite near that junction on the same side of the road as Seaford Street.

Hi All
 it certainly looks like the entrance to Seaforde St. The Popular  Picture House known as The Pop was just below this junction as you say.at the corner of Youngs Row.

That's the one BE - do you remember what the other cinema on the Newtownards Road was called?
