Was that 'Nimrod' in the middle? :)

I am not sure of any of the identities, but Nimrod is not a name that I have come across before. @tboy. Perhaps you can inform me more? My Grandfather John Stewart, who moved to Newry circa 1924 was a brother of the Stewart Brothers, as I say a family story that they painted the interior of The City Hall. I do not know which brothers or exactly when  :)

Hello Sean, H&J Martin were the main contractors on the city hall, they employed 'subbies' even then :) Nimrod is an old slang name for a painter 's foreman (Hunter) good luck tboy.
