Gor some reason, G, that number sticks in my head as having been the Bridge Bar but could be totally mistaken. Bar 21 may have been Hunts and Hinds ok.

Now that you say it,I think you're right.

Sorry to go back on an old subject but I heard on good authority that the shop on the corner of Nobels Field & Seaforde St before it was known as Youngs..etc, was actually a 2nd hand furniture shop run by Jamesy & Francie Campbell. Can any of our more senior members cast their mind that far back and confirm this?

thanks buffalo, looks like there were also peace walls in the 20's!? im wondering if that is the pop cinema just 2 the right as was discussed in an earlier thread? i remember as a kid  in the early 70's we used 2 walk from young row 2 the corner of seaford st as a dare as u were taking ur life in ur hands, very little has changed since the 20's.

Aye mickybo I've got some photos taken around the lower N'ards road and the Green all taken in the late 60's, I'm just waiting for the person to whom I lent the CD with photos on it to return it hopefully over the weekend! As soon as I get it back I'll post them for ya. Here's another photo from the same area as the last one. It's Dalton street looking up to Memel Street taken in June 1970.
 


Really looking forward to your photos,Buffaloburger.

Mickybo, if you look closely you can see bullet holes on the corner of the wall on the left hand side of the photo (made by a heavy calibre bullet by the look of it!), just above the heads of the kids! The 'Peace' wall was put up by the Army to reduce the potential for mob incursions into the streets of the Short Strand, hence the reason they left an opening just wide enough for one person at a time to pass through! (As seen on the right hand side of the barricade)
