Does anyone out there have any pictures or historical information on Louisa street, before it was demolished a few years ago
                           Thanks

Louisa Street ran from the Oldpark Road to Walton Street. If you lived in that street or know of anyone who lived there please help Kenith with some memories or pictures of the area. Did you go regularly to the Byron Dart Club, call in to R. Armstrong's shop or John Blackburn's shop  (they were both at the junction of Druse Street and Louisa Street) or did you attend Louisa Street Pentecostal Church?

No pictures Kenith, but my Aunt, Sarah Gourley lived in the first house off the Oldpark, next door to the co-op. I had two cousins Derek and Roberta, who also lived at that address.
That would have been about forty years ago.
Two silly oul monarchs in battle did join, each wanting his head on the back of a coin, if the irish had sense they would throw both in the boyne.

Lived there for awhile opposite the scrapyard Bates think it was. Haven't to many memories of it but I remember hannalulus. There was a bar on the corner just a bit down from the scrapyard,opposite side. It was on the corner of another street which ran off Walton street. Magees might have been the name.

We lived there for a while with my aunt. Meg was the name. Think she too had to move because of the 'troubles'.

Remember the Big King Billy on the gable wall on a street that ran off Louisa St, there was a chip shop and a sweet shop there also. My Brother told me there was a pub off Louisa st (going towards Crumlin st) that was very rough

another urban myth, the only resistance that old git was in was the resistance to buy proper beer. :)
