Would anyone have photos of the Ulster Weaving Company in Linfield Road. My Mum worked there as a weaver and I would love a photo.

Thanks

This is a photo taken in Rowland Street, off Sandy Row with Linfield Mill in the background.      There is a photo of Linfield Mill School on the Forum.     In search box.   type Linfield Mill

Salisbury.   Got your pm.   Have no photos,as such,  of Ulster Weaving Company, where I worked in the Pay Office in 1947 where we paid both the Spinning Mill and the Weaving Factory workers.  Here is a photo from my computer.   David.    Will pm you.

This is a map of Linfield Road in 1931.   Ulster Weaving Factory is quite large.   Alan Godfrey maps. Central Belfast 1931.

Hi

My grandmother Kathleen Fullalove worked in the Ulster Weaving Company in the 1960's a(maybe before) and early 70's. Remember her talking about boss Alec Finlay. Great if there are any photos around
