Milliken Street.

It joined the Falls Road at 106 Falls Road... in 1960, that was  Kathleen & Agnes McIlroy, confectioners, then on the other corner of Milliken Street on the Falls Road at 108 Falls Road was Mrs. I. Kennedy, green grocer.

Joseph O'Malley, Home Bakery was at 70 Falls Road.

So being an even number, that would be on the same side of the Falls Road as the junction of the Falls Road and Milliken Street.

Belfast Corporation Public Baths were at 15-17 Falls Road at the corner of Falls Road and North Howard Street, on the northern side of Falls Road.

That's the same address as the present day Falls Leisure Centre.

Modern map...  http://tinyurl.com/yckupyno

Milliken Street ran between the Falls Road at it's northern end, and Ross Street at it's southern end, so it would have joined the south side of Falls Road in that area.

Here you go, Milliken Street is the street marked with the coloured line, it was between Balaclava Street and Panton Street, and the bakers would have been to the east of Milliken Street.
