My father in law, Chris Stevenson,  lived at 32 Woosdtock Road and his garage opened up to Malcolm Lane, 1935 until 1959.   Opposite the garage lived Albert McCurheon and his wife, in Malcolm Lane.      Found out recently from Census of Ireland 1901  that my mother's family, the Grants and Lynass lived there in the 1900's.   David.

I went to Park Parade school and knew a girl there in my class of 1953 from Malcolm Lane by the name of Pat Clayton. other than that I just remember the name and where she lived - oh, I do remember
on our first day we were asked what religion (Whatever that had to do with the price of fish) and she said Salvation Army. My ears pricked up because I used to go to Mountpottinger Salvos with my grandmother. Jim.

Hi Martynes, Thanks for reply. George Best's granny lived in Malcolm St. We left "the lane" in 1960/61 and moved to Rochester Street

My memory is getting a wee bit dim of that area now, I have been in Australia for the last fifty years and I have never been back there.  I know it is all gone but I do have my young memories of the Woodstock, Ravenhill, Beersbridge rds.and Albertbridge and Newtownards Rds. too of course.  Jim.

Yes I know, I have seen pictures and also looked on Google Earth.  I hope everyone appreciates all the changes and new housing, it does look neat & smart!  Jim.

big t.         My wife Hazel remembers your Grandmother Martha Miller in no.5.   Hazel was the daughter of Chris Stevenson in no.7.      My wife remembers Martha so well because Martha looked after her, during a severe bout of Pneumonia in 1945, what saved Hazel was that M&B tablets had just came out.
Martha was a lovely Lady, Hazel remembers.

Worked years ago with Stanley Titterington and remember him speaking about his early life there.
And so it goes: "yours sincerely, Holden McGroyne."

Does anyone have any information regarding Malcolm lane in the 1910's or 1920's, Watters family lived there.  If there are any old photos or website links I can check for referencing
