Street Map of West Belfast Area 1930s
« on: April 05, 2021, 12:40:35 PM »
Hi, if any one could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. I'm looking to download a file (or buy hard copy) of street map of west Belfast area in the 1930s. I have particular interest in Letitia Street, Cinnamon Street, Pound Loney and Celtic Park where the Belfast Celtic used to play. I have tried to get old Ordnance Survey maps but to no avail.

Many thanks in advance,
Tom

Try again with a combination of 1931 Central map



































Fingers crossed for a clearer result

Sorry, screenshots are not in order, they get mixed up when saved in groups.
Anyway there are similar maps on EBay,
Type in Ordnance Maps of Belfast in the search box.  reasonable cost
Enjoy.

Try the PRONI Historical maps of NI. I have found this site very useful. Best of luck.

Hi Bread Basket,

you have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Big big thanks.

I bought Map - Central Belfast 1931.
Letitia Street, Cinnamond Street and Pound Loney area included.

My dad lived in Cinnamond Street. (I left out the 'D' in my forum name - silly me!)

I have ordered a personalised jigsaw of the map.
It has generated so much conversation with ma' & da' of memories past, I could write a book!

I am very appreciative of the help.

The Belfast Forum is a wonderful place to inhabit.

All the very best,
CST

You are very welcome CST
Glad to see you enjoying the Forum
If you go to the top right hand corner of any page on the Froum you will see a search box.
Type in Cinnamond St and you may be pleasantly surprised to see names of people who used to live in the street.
There is also a site where you can look at different streets in Belfast etc over the years which will tell you who lived there

https://www.lennonwylie.co.uk/ccomplete1960_b.htm



Keep using the site and keep asking questions etc

Hope your parents enjoy the jigsaw 👍🏼
