A couple of times every week for the last few years I  pass on the train waste ground of what I believe is the old Sorocco works, now it is my understanding that there is a cronic shortage of social housing in the Short Strand, that being the case why are there no houses being built on that site, surely it cant be the shortage of money, because just a half mile away there is an area that they threw money at it as if it were confetti, namely the Titanic Quarter....Can some of you good people of the Short Strand enlighten me to what the reason of this situation is?

Bump.

grannyspice:the saddest thing about looking at an old wedding album,ours is from 1967 is that most of the people in the photos have passed away.

Hi Marie, everything good at this end. Our weather is lovely today. Sun is shining and of course the trees have started to change colours but the nights are chilly. We have closed up the back yard and stored away the furniture for another year. The flowers in my hanging baskets are starting to die so I guess I will have to put some Autumn ones out. Hope you and yours are well. :-*

You are right jonjoe. I think in our group photo there is only one or two of the wedding guests still alive :-(

Love seeing the posts about the Short Strand...My Dad was born and raised in the area being born Short Strand St..My Dad left Belfast to  seek work in Birmingham then Manchester...I love to hear all the stories about the people from the area.As a child Summer Holidays were spent at My Grandmothers 102 Bryson St running around all the streets going to the Baths around the corner.The Cinema walking into Town.So many happy memories so many friends Boy's and Girl's...It fills me with great emotion whenever I think of them...I returned the other year to see Bryson St relatives still live on it...Felt so sad to see the peacewall...Where the house used to be..I suppose I can be grateful for the Fabulous memories I have something which no one can take away from me .Even when I arrive by flight and come into Belfast City Airport...I look for the landmark of St Matthews and my heart skips a beat.
