Hi! My mum used to work at Ewarts Mill. I think she done the spinning. Her name was Margaret Stone (Maggie). She would have worked there around 50ís

My great uncle John Leonard owned a newsagent tobacconist on Crumlin Road, just above Saint Maryís Church and opposite Wiltons Funeral parlour. If you worked in either Ewarts or Flax Street Mills you probably bought your ciggies, snuff and papers there before starting work.

I was in that Shop a few times, now my memory might be playing tricks on me but,
Was the Fruit and Vegetable shop close to that shop called Reeds ??

leopold street is still there, all new houses now,sorry no pics don,t no how to put them on.  .. :)

But it's a very different Leopold Street from the one in which I grew up. The old one stretched from the Crumlin Road almost to St. Matthew's on the Shankill, the "new" one stops at Ohio Street, which now continues through to Cambrai Street, through what would been about the old 70 Leopold Street (ours was 86). There is a Leopold Place and a Leopold Gardens as an echo of what once was.
