It was near the top (ie. Albertbridge Road) end of the Ravenhill Road, which you can see running down the left hand side of the following map.  While Hamilton Place is not named in the map, the 1924 Belfast street directory on the Lennon Wylie website allows a good guess at where it was (approximately in the red circle). 



The 1924 directory listing for Hamilton Place says that it ran from 'Murray's Place to Swift Street':

While the map shows Swift Street, it doesn't show Murray's Place.  However, the 1924 directory listing for the 'evens' side of Ravenhill Road (starting from the Albertbridge Road) shows the following streets running off it:

- George's Street (named on the map)
- Empress Street (unnamed);
- Moore Street (named);
- Murray's Place (unnamed);
- Wallace's Row (unnamed);

Then a lot more houses until arriving at Shamrock Street and Glentoran Street.
