Nos 5 to 29 York Road
« on: August 30, 2019, 09:59:14 AM »
Hi,

I am looking for any information regarding which businesses were located in the odd numbered sites from 5 to 29 York Road, probably from the late 1970's to the present day ?

Many thanks in anticipation,
Willhesee

The best that I can offer you is from the 1969 Belfast Street Directory.

Nos 3-7 was The Alexandra Bar which is now derelict.
Nos 11a-11b Was the AFM social club which was closed and incorporated into Thompsons animal feeds.
Nos 13-37 was various shops which are all derelict now except for one (possibly 25ish)which is a small art gallery.
At one stage from 1980ish to the mid nineties there was a good chippy (The Piper) mid block and a café (I think it was Hamilton's)

Hi Bread Basket and BrixMis,

Many thanks for this information.  My copy of the Belfast Street Directory is dated 1959 and I have been trying to piece together more recent information regarding that end of York Road.  Both my grandfathers had businesses on either side of the road and my parents met as a result of working there.

Thanks again,
Willhesee
