Pre 1970 maps of New Lodge (Dock Ward) area
« on: March 30, 2018, 07:48:34 AM »
3 generations of my mother's side of the family lived and grew up here in various streets in the New Lodge area.
Doherty and McManus people.
I am writing up their story with photos for ours and future generations :-)
The problem is that many of the old streets of this are were demolished and dissappeared in the 1970's including
Artillery Street, Pinkerton Street, Hardinge Street etc.
Does anyone know of any  good digital maps that show the neighbourhood as it was any time before 1970?
I have found a map (on the (LennonWylie page) of West Belfast as at 1939 which would be perfect but it's hopelessly blurry. 
Cheers
Phil
