Re Bellevue Arms.  My mother and I both had part-time jobs in the Bellevue in the 1970s when Harry Diamond (Sr) was still alive. His sons, Eamonn and Harry Jr both worked there as did his daughter, Yvonne.  I went to school with another of the Diamond family, Soinibhe, and I believe she also worked in the Bellevue at one time.  I went back there in June 2008 for the first time in nearly thirty years.  What a shock!  I remember the dining room downstairs with white linen tablecloths and a dancefloor!

Hi all, I've just found the forum. My grandparents were Robert and Martha Stevenson who lived at Whitewell in the first half of the 20th century.They had daughters Ethel, Roberta, Marian and Mabel(my mother) and a son Harold who died in the 1st World War. They lived in the big house between Stevenson's shop and the row of houses on the lower side of the Antrim road.I think my granny ran the shop and my grandfather had another job.
I remember that other pub which was demolished. It was at the end of the row at the top of the Whitewell road where it used to end before the motorway was built.
Someone mentioned the Baron Hall and there is a photo of sunday school members. My mother went to primary school there.she was born in1909.The Baron Hall is still there.

I didn't see your post Eleanor. .It was a shock to see how the restaurant has gone down from those days of the early 70's.   There was a lady who was the restaurant manager or maybe the cook that we knew.  I was thereagain  in July 2007 . O0

Hi JohnC
Just to clarify. Thanks for photo.I have saved it. My mum could be there or her older sisters. I remember those houses well.I used to pass them every day on the way to school. My Mum(Mabel Stevenson) had a good innings. She died in 1999 aged 90.
Bye

Fiona

I'm talking about the cottages at the side of the Zoo and up a lane.  On the other side of the road I don't think that there were any cottages.  It is possible that if there were that they were demolished when the M2 motorway was built. ::)
hi china Sam
on the other side from the zoo coming from Belfast was first Mrs Mckernans wooden bungalow
then Mrs Gillespies shop then the entry with the well at the top then a row of terrace houses
then the old original bellevue arms then the bookies shop at the bus stop at the top of the whitewell
road these were all knocked down when they were building the m2 motorway along with all the houses at the top of the whitewell road
regards
