Thanks for your reply.  My story is a bit of a mixed bag.  My grandfather had returned to Northern Ireland around 1921 with my dad and his sister.  My grandmother died tragically in 1919.  In order for my grandfather to remain working he had to find accommodation for my father and his sister and they were checked into Nazareth House and Lodge through St. Mary's.  Their address was given as 5 Scotland Street.

A James Butler lived at 5 Scotland st in 1918  so maybe the same Person was still there in 1921

Yes I saw the name Butler, they were there in 1910 and in 1918.  Does anyone have any photographs of Scotland Street?

Hi, thank you so much for putting up two maps of Scotland Street.  I can see that Millfield Foundry is very close and that makes me think that their might have been a connection with my grandfather going in that vicinity.  He was written down as being an Iron Driller.  Does anyone else think the same as me or do you think an Iron Driller would have been on the docks?

Divis Street 1934.
 
The photo appears to have urinals in the foreground. If they are urinals would they be at the junction of Barrack Street/Divis Street as indicated on the OS map supplied by Spot??????

Divis Street Mill 1966. The mill is on the corner of Pound Street and on the other coner is the Methodist Church.
If the urinals are at Barrack Street/Divis Street would that be the Divis Street mill in the background? :scratch_ones_head: ?
