What about the hotel in Carrick Hill area?  Stan Laurel  and Oliver Hardy and wives stayed in the Midland Hotel.

They did indeed Rathlin....whereabouts was the hotel in Carrickhill. ..I get it now....sorry to be slow but it must have been the big hostel for homeless men. ;)   We looked after homeless people better years ago than we do today.

I got my first reference from the owner of that hotel.   His name was Cecil but the surname escapes me :D

Astor...we might be talking about different hotels ..the Imperial on Cliftonpark was a temperance hotel and I was in it when I was 15.  I got a reference for a summer job from school.   Don't know that Sally Ann is correct when she states that I am older than her. .I wouldn't think so? :D

I used to drink in the International a Hotel in the 1960's.  The Royal Avenue Hotel was my favourite for late drinking.  I remember one of the young barmen in the International, Peter Ward, nice lad, no harm in him.  He was murdered in a pub in Malvern Street for being a Catholic.
