Hi Dougie. If my memory serves me right, the shop was on the corner of Groomsport St. There was also a grocery store on Manor St., called Cruise. They had a daughter called Deidre. There was also another grocery store called Davies on the corner of Bandon St., and a Tobacco/candy sop called Barnes, then later called Knowles. Knowles had a daughter called Linda. Do you remember any of these shops? .Billy Scott...Manor St until Nov. 1961..
anyone remember Jerrys  shop mannor st ,it was the first shop to open all hours seven days a week,what a blessing in the days when all shops closed on sundays and even the parks locked the swings up. It was bottom of Newport st or  Groomesport st
No matter where I roam, Belfast will always be my home.

Hi Dougie. How are ye doing? Hope all is well with you.
How do you remember all the thing's you do? I have CRS disease....Can't remember [censored]..lol
Do you remember McGrands on the Oldpark Rd? If I remember correctly, they sold newspapers & comics. And wasn't there another shop that sold comics across from the Catholic church on the Oldpark also? (Between the Bally St's.) The bicycle shop & Jeans chippy at the top of Beechpark/ Oldpark Rd. I'm just trying to remember the shops I frequented during my childhood.
Can you still get the Dandy, Beano, Beezer, Topper & Hotspur comics? I still have the ones I brought over when I came to the States.
Take Care. .Billy.  :)

I lived across from that big wooden gate for 17 years & never seen inside it. Often wondered what was in there, but never looked.
It is nice to hear Derg St. mission is still standing. Went there on Friday nights & really enjoyed it. Also went to Sunday School at Ebenezer. Great times. .Billy

Hi Billy re Derg st mission ,I emailed you a photo of the mission a few months back ,did so because I have no idea how to post photos on here, hope you got it.Behind the gate was just space for the top three houses of Derg and Bandon st to put their bins ,you are right about the shops opposite the chapel with the pawn shop on the corner with it's little side door in ballymeana st meant to afford a bit of privacy to those pledging their goods
