Great photo! Can see the spire of the church in the distance, pity that has made way for another housing project

Used to love the wee train that ran there years ago and robbing the fruit from the plots and orchards.
Oh for all our yesterdays.

The building on the right was 'the hardware stores' when I was a kid :)

This is my photo! It's a private house which sat above the Crumlin Road.

The route was the 93 to Carr's Glen but vehicles running from Carr's Glen into the city centre would have displayed 83 or 84 to Ormeau or 85 or 86 to Mount Merrion. In the same way buses leaving Ormeau or Mount Merrion and heading into the city to go to Carr's Glen would have shown 93 or 94 as they crossed the city. (The same applied on the 35 Carr's Glen route which was a through service on the 33 to Ormeau/Cregagh and the 61 which ran as the 69 to Stranmillis from Carr's Glen)

Confused?

83 to Ormeau  and 85 to Mount Merrion ran from the City Centre via Gt Victoria Street
84 to Ormeau and 86 to Mount Merrion ran from the City Centre via Bedford Street
