Bob Carol was a giant of a man. He used to knock men out of

their sick beds !! He and Dad each had a VERY large whiskey

and a long chat, memories. Carol lived near Isabella club.

I remember my Father saying he used to race pigeons

but he didn't enlarge on it and I didn't enquire.

Welder, it’s logged as Arosa in the 39 directory, however, there is a note on the 32 directory which indicates that a decision had been made “somewhere” to alter the spelling.
There is no Arosa listed in the 24 directory so can presume that the street was built between 1924 & 1932

Pic of Glasgow St after the blitz in 1941. Glasgow St was at the bottom of Arosa.

About the Demographic InformationThe information on housing, people, culture, employment and education that is displayed about Arosa Parade, Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT15 3JF is based on the last census performed in the UK in 2011. They are performed once every 10 years. Please note: census information may include figures for adjacent streets and postcodes. The figures are therefore representative of the local area, not a specific street address or row of houses. The census collection is designed so that each group of postcodes should contain at least 100 people (50 in Scotland). This is done to preserve the anonymity of the people in that area, as some postcodes cover a very small area, sometimes a single building.

Good morning Welder,Please take a look at this you-tube video on Trolley Buses in Belfast. There is a clip which starts at approx 5:55 minutes into the recording. It shows a bus coming down the Whitewell Road and turns onto the Shore Rd. During that clips it passes Arosa Parade which would be on the right as you look at the video. The relevant clips ends around 6:14 as the bus moves on towards Belfast city centre. Important to me is that during that 20 seconds or so it also shows and passes my old Primary School, St Joseph's.  :)
