Cromac Street and the markets
« on: February 17, 2018, 08:33:17 AM »
Hi!  I am looking for old photographs of Cromac Street in particular but also the wider markets area.  Ideally from the 1930s-1960's (or earlier) but really ANY photos of the area before the clearances of the houses around the top of Cromac Street would be of huge interest. Even pictures where the street is in the background would be great!

I would also love to hear from anyone who might have class or other photos from Eliza Street school in the 1940's or Oxford Street CBS from 1930's.

My interest is partly my own family history (I am the grand daughter of Mick Hughes who ran a shop at the top of Cromac Street until the late 1950's with Lily Murray - I have seen reference to them on these forums before and would love to hear from anyone who remembers them!) and also because I am doing some research into the history of the area.

Any help much appreciated!

Thanks!

Dub

This link above was for the original  "Who do you know from the Market thread", it went to over 900 pages before being set back for a newer thread.which is under the Belfast history section. There should be some photo of interest on both .
                                                                                            All the best,Dub.

Hi, Lily Murray was a relative of mine, by any chance are you related to her? Best regards, Jack
