Eglinton Bakery.
« on: October 21, 2014, 03:40:35 PM »
Hope that topic heading is the correct spelling!! This bakery was owned by the Davidson family and was on either the Malone or Lisburn road (think it was the former). Does anyone know where it was exactly and what happened to it?

Thanks Chink - not the same place/business. I had/have a cousin called Jimmy Davidson who wrote a history about the bakery but he seems to have vanished off the face of Belfast!

Takes a while to load, but this old newspaper article includes several mentions of the Eglinton Bakery:

[size=-1]Thanks DUB and CMcG for your contribution.
Re: James Davidson - found he was the chairman of the East Belfast Historical Society from 2005 - 2007 but although I sent them an enquiry as to his whereabouts I have had no reply to date, they probably do not know any more that us the family. Onward and upward as they say.

cocogerm The Eglington Bakery was down the second entry on the Lisburn rd past Sandy row. It was bought over by Andrews flour mill in the late 50s early 60s and moved to Springfield parade off the Springfield road where it got the Nickname The Spring it was there until the 70s was bought over by Ormeau bakery and they closed it. hope  this helps you

Hello cocogerm. We are related. Jimmy Davidson is/was a cousin of mine. His father was my uncle Willie his wife was called Daisy. I have fond memories of the old Lisburn Rd bakery. Moving to the Springwell Rd was a disaster. It all started in Eglinton Street of the Antrim Road. What year??? Do you know the name Carl Hendrix? Does Ard Na Car ring a bell?

Yours Parky
