If you Google "Old Belfast" then select "Images", you will have hundreds, if not thousands,  to browse through.   :)

Aye Joe, I understand what you would like to see. You want photos of kids playing Footie in the street, you want to see the types of houses in which the people lived. I am sure like myself and others you are reading the street names and wondering to yourself "What does that street look like" I have not visited all the wee streets in Belfast. I've a rough idea about the main roads but once loads of wee streets are mentioned I'm lost.

Why stop at streets, Joe, what about the old schools photos too and pics of people on holiday. I'll start with a picture of my sister and myself rowing a boat on the Mooragh Park in Ramsey, IoM. Sorry about my hairstyle. I was mistaken about Babara rowing I was doing the rowing by myself.

That's the ring road round the city. The road going across from the left to right of the picture is the Castlereagh Road and Ballygowan Road. That buildin top left hand corner is a block of shops. Derek Marsden (pianist and organist) and his wife Irene (nee Sandford) owned one of those shops. Irene was well known in musical circles as a singer. Derek had an afternoon request programme on Downtown Radio on Sunday afternoons. When Derek died in 1998 his daughter Karen took his place on the programme

Sorry Chris, but it is not the Castlereagh Road.

It is the Knock dual carriageway at Forestside/Sainsbury's/Upper Galwally/Foster Green Hospital and Glencregagh.

What is the building at the top left of the picture Les ??? This aerial picture has me confused. If you could say which road is which I might understand. When I go into town next time maybe I should get off the bus for a look. I am surprised the big cemetery can not be seen in that picture. Would it appear in the aerial shot that would appear below this one?
