Hello, my name is David Hill.  My father's family used to live at "Seaforde", 10 Carnmoney Road, Glengormley.  My uncle, Alexander Hill, was the local tailor and postman.  His father, my grandfather, died in 1940 and was also the tailor. 

Initially, it would be great to hear from anyone who remembers the family in general.  In particular any old photos of my uncle(s) or Bob Hill, my father.

BTW, I am still in touch with, and know very well, the son of the late Mr & Mrs Sutton who had the sweet shop.

Ironically i now live in that house and the old outhouse at the back had the remains of the old tailorshop. It was a real snapshot of the period. It had a little "stage" to display clothes, tailors workbench, a fireplace and gas lighting...a little dangerous next to a naked flame..!
