There used to be a family that lived on Lord street many years ago , their last name  , Shannon , Billy and Margaret. This was around mid 60's . Does anyone know if they still live there?  I would like to get in touch with them if possible.  Margaret's maiden name was McMaster.

Don't suppose anyone remembers the name of the shop on the corner of Foxglove Street and Beersbridge Road in the 60's and early 70's.  There was another sweetshop a little further down the Beersbridge Road called Lockharts.
My Aunt used to live in Flora St so we used to play around the area all the time especially down by the river near the Platts - many years later I found out it was apparently Belfast slang for Plots (in other words allotments)!!  Did make me laugh.
I think it might have been Ralph's my partner used to live down there

Grace Emmanuel was a girlfriend of mine for some time.  Tall with honey coloured skin and really beautiful.  She was a dancer and married the leader of Cliff Richards' Band in London.  She had a brother Rafhael.  As far as I knew her father was a surgeon and her mother an ex model.

A poster on RootsWeb is researching the family tree for James Glover from East Belfast. He did preach in Belfast prior to, during, and after WW2. He was referred to as Pastor Glover. The poster has failed to establish the church that Pastor Glover attended. It's known that he lived in the Ballymacarrett district and had a pony drawn mobile vegetable business . Pastor Glover was born in 1870 and died in 1953. At the time of his death he was living in the Sydenham district.

Jame Glover, born Omagh 1867.  I believe he was Episcopalian.  He was also a Carter (fruit/Veg) and he did indeed live in Sydenham area when he died.

I remember grace Emmanuel her father was my doctor for many years


I know your posting was quite a while ago but couldn't resist sending you a message.  Maybe you are still on here.  Dr Emmanuel was my family doctor right up to 1957.  My Aunt Betty worked for him when he was in Ravenscroft Ave.  As far as I remember he originally was at Bloomfield Ave and Newtownards road
in an office upstairs. He wasn't all that far from away Gerry McAteer's fruit shop. When he started first he used to give a shilling if you signed up for his panel.   People were afraid of him because of the tribal scars on his face. 
Once he became known he became very popular.    [/color][/font][/size]
As well as being a good doctor to me we became friends and kept in touch for a long time after I left Belfast for Canada in February of 1957.   I'm getting up there in the age bracket and not sure if I spelt or even have the right name of the fruit/greengrocer right.   I lived at #11 East bread Street.  Name is William Shaw.  Good morning for Toronto.  Local time 12:58 a.m.
