  Hi .Belfaseman

     I   think  That Fish &chip shop  was on the corner of Mayola St & Nth. Queen St .

     The Barbers was across the other side of Nth .Queen St   Also There Was  Longs Chip Shop

     At The Stumps  In Duncairn &Glenrosa St . The Other Barbers Was Bradburys

    Cheers Alby

i well remember pulyoes chip shop on north queen st., charlie loughrans hair dressers was there also,  many a time i was sent to have my hair cut as a child and i still bear the scars.  pulyoe had only one arm and it was fasinating seeing him wrap the fish supper, i think another chip shop on the other side of the road was the savoy owned by peter kelly who used to take pet lamb for walks on a lead,i came from artillery st 8)

That was not peter kelly that was Mary taking the lamb to school.Peter called his wife a wee lamb because she was always bleating.

My granda says the chippy was Pelio's and was owned by Kennedy's and the kids who got their haircut in the barbers were called Charlie Loughran Specials and there was also a ladies hair dressers there as well.

     I had quite a few Charlie Loughran Specials in my day !
          Was said at one time he would place a bowl on  the childs head and clip off everything that showed below it .Not true.Rough or not I nearly always had to wait in line  for a haircut?
           It wasn,t difficult to spot a Special!

you had to wait in line for a < special> in charlie loughrans hairdressers because getting a haircut was the nearest thing to s&m. i don,t remember a ladies hairdresser there did charlie do both.

 I was browsing a book recently which mentioned Loughrans barbers
 on North Queen street.
 The book was More Questions Than Answers by Kevin Sheehy the ex RUC/PSNI
 officer.
 The first chapter about his upbringing mentions this as his grandfathers barber shop,
 then his fathers.
 Told some good stories about nearby pubs and visits from American GIs etc.
 The owner is away back to England with the book but I have seen it recently in Easons
 if anyone wants to check.
