Belfast History and Memories / Re: James Mackie & Sons
« Last post by StewartyMc on Today at 02:22:29 PM »

I worked in Mackies in 1966 as an apprentice.  I knew some great characters from this place.  One being - John Cooper, he was a continental fitter.  I remember going to the Liverpool match against Everton with him, it being my first game.

Would be great to hear from anyone working there at that time.  Especially if anyone knows John, it would be good to hear from him.

Perseverance pays off and at last I'm the proud owner of an original L Murdoch watercolour. I purchased it online from a house clearance sale in County Monaghan back in June for the massive sum of 51.31 and this included two others. When divided three ways it cost little more than one of the elusive postcards!

Still no word on the artist though.



"Dunluce Castle, County Antrim".

I think most reasonable people would agree we live in a compensation culture. Don't you Dot ?  :D

My personal view jjmack is that in today`s society a large percentage of a certain type of person refuse to take responsibility
for many things which are a complete lack of common sense on their part.

Self-blame is a complete and utter foreign country to them.
I am speaking in general terms-not with regard to the young lady in particular.

Very true, but some people are just too trusting.  :(

Yes jjmack-not everyone is `clued up`so to speak.Especially the elderly who are not used to people like those
who are bereft of morals and decency.

Belfast Genealogy / Re: Kerr family Belfast

I am currently looking for a James Kerr.  He would be my granny's father.  Her mother was a Susan Cairns and she was given up for adoption shortly after she was born in 1934.  The only address I know of is norwood street Belfast, but I'm not sure if that was Susan's address or James'.

The general location within Belfast where my Father lived was known as Tiger Bay. As a boy I
reckon I had an odd perception of Belfast.
