I would say the photo of the Strand is 1974.

The photo of seaforde st is later than 1983. If Iremember rightly gerry gibney was owner of the shop at the time, after mary smith had  moved in due to local hudlums ransacked here premses in sheriff st [1984]

I always looked forward to the Mc Keating family feud every Sat night. The da and brothers giving each other a good hammering. Ah ! bring back the good oul days. Peggy Mc Creesh and Nellie Fegan scrapping, where has it all gone ?

Jim B I think you're right it was a mistype I had been told 1974 not 1984, well spotted!
 
Well folks here are some more pics of Clyde St, Woodstock St and just for the Bigman one of Madrid St/Bryson St taken around 1983. I've also thrown in a couple of others just for good measure!!!

Matt stitt was a realy good friend of mine and I remember him talking about owening a shop in the late sixties.
I don't think it lasted very long. But I think the location was on the cornerr of beachfeild st and Bryson st.Teresa young worked for him people m
ay have had the impression that it was youngs but matt stitt owened the shop
The shop at nobles field in the early sixties was definatley owened by someone else at that time maybe later on the youngs may have been involved
 
 
does anyone remember the reynolds's from arran st
