California Street and Basin Street
« on: July 29, 2020, 10:52:31 AM »
My family lived in California Street in the 1850's and 60's.  I can't find it on modern maps - was it where California Place is now?  Another family member lived in Basin Street - but I can't find that either. Does it still exist?  If not does anyone know where it was?

Canít see a Basin St, just Basin Lane

California St still around in 1960

Hope this helps

Many thanks.  That enabled me to get a rough idea where Basin Lane must have been - somewhere near Bankmore Street I think. There's an article on the libraryireland site regarding water supply to the city and apparently there was a reservoir in that area called the Basin.I'm still a little puzzled about the exact location of California St however. I see that it ran between Wall St & Old Lodge Road.  I can see Wall St on current maps but not Old Lodge Road. On which side of Wall St was it?

Wow, you are indeed a hero!  Many thanks.  It doesn't look to be an area for prosperous folk - so maybe 'corn dealer' wasn't a big deal.

Not relevant to this post but I can't see how to get an answer to my problem.   How can I post a genealogy question to the forum?  When I tried to send a message to the Belfast Genealogy Board regarding family who lived in California Street I was told I wasn't allowed to do so!
