Billy Fury was lovely  my  older cousin had photos of him on her bedroom wall . she kissed him goodnight every night .  yesterday valentines day was sunny bright and although still cold obviously it is FEB   It was a pleasure to be outside . we went to a park for a walk named Valentines Park in Ilford 15 mins bus ride away as if driving parking costs a fortune and always  busy   .50 'hectares'   ? of grounds, boating lake , exhibition buildings play areas restaurants and the Mansion which wasn't open as had a private function going on . we actually sat outside having  lunch with our coats on but very comfortable for 2 hours until the sun disappeared. some people were dressed for summer though one guy had shorts on ?!  long shorts..but shorts . there are so many open spaces all over London i read recently that 47% were green areas here . although a very busy city lots of places to enjoy  even in the centre lots of hidden gems .I have a freedom pass so free travel... yay!  the only perk of getting' old '..best wishes to all

I think my dad Jimmy Curley played paddy a few times,as he talked about paddy when they played for st marys my dad played for the national as well in his later days he became the marker and looked after the tables in the old national club in berry st, it's great to see that paddy is still about, delighted I came across this page about paddy

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO YOU ALL.  *

LIZ, THE WIND AND SNOW WAS VERY STRONG AND IT WENT THROUGH A VENT IN THE ROOF AND BLEW OUT THE PILOT LIGHT, BOBBY SAID IT'S NOT UNUSUAL FOR THAT TO HAPPEN WITH HIGH WINDS.

SARAH IS RIGHT, YOU DO HAVE VERY GOOD FRIENDS SHOPPING FOR YOU AND MAKING SURE YOU HAVE A TV. YOU SHOULD CHECK THEM ON LINE, YOU MAY BE ABLE TO GET A GOOD DEAL AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. :-*

HI SARAH, YOU MUST HAVE BEEN  "MORTIFIED" WHEN YOU DROPPED THE DISH,   :(  THANKFULLY IT WASN'T A DOULTON OR BELLECK  :o   :-*

RUBY COULD YOU IMAGINE DROPPING ONE OF THEM.   :o   THE WIND HAD BEEN VERY STRONG THIS LAST WEEK  BUT SEEMS TO HAVE CALMED DOWN.  I HAVE GONE ON LINE LOOKING AT TV'S AND HAVE SEEN  ONE I LIKE SO IT'S JUST A CASE OF GETTING IT AND HAVING IT INSTALLED.   LIZ :-*

LIZ, YOU HAVE SOME VERY KIND AND THOUGHTFUL FRIENDS.  THAT WAS SO NICE OF THEM TO BRING YOU A TV TO WATCH.  I HAVEN'T GOT ANY NEWS EXCEPT THAT I EMBARRASSED MYSELF IN A SHOP TODAY - I PICKED UP A PORCELAIN TURTLE THAT I FANCIED TO HAVE A BETTER LOOK AT IT, DIDN'T REALISE THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY A DISH WITH THE LID BEING THE SHELL AND IT WASN'T FASTENED ON, AND DOWN IT WENT AND SMASHED.  I WAS "CUT TO THE ONION" AS WE USED TO SAY.  :D   IT WASN'T EXPENSIVE AND I APOLOGISED PROFUSELY AND DID OFFER TO PAY FOR IT, BUT THE WOMAN KNOWS ME AND SHE REFUSED.  FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I'VE EVER BROKEN SOMETHING IN A SHOP.  :-[   

RUBY, PLEASE BE CAREFUL IF YOU HAVE TO GO OUT.  THAT ICE WOULD TERRIFY ME.  FALLING ON OUR BACKSIDES WHEN WE WERE KIDS NEVER BOTHERED US, BUT NOWADAYS IT CAN BE VERY SERIOUS.   :o :-*
TO ALL OUR OTHER PALS, KEEP WARM AND TAKE CARE.  NIGHT NIGHT.  :-*

KC,  I WOULD HAVE FELT THE SAME WAY, CUT TO THE BONE BUT THE WOMAN WAS NICE NOT TO HAVE CHARGED YOU, THEY USUALLY HAVE THAT NOTICE UP ABOUT BREAKING AND PAYING HA.    WELL THIS MORNING , IT'S 6:44an , AND IT'S 4C HAS NOT BEEN UP OVER 0 FOR A WHILE.  LET'S HOPE IT MELTS ALL THE ICE BEFORE IT GETS TIME TO FREEZE AGAIN.   HAVE A GREAT DAY.  LIZ :-*

Belfast History and Memories / Brucevale Park - Telephone Exchange
« Last post by phild707 on Yesterday at 11:01:01 AM »


Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone happens to anything about the history of Telephone Exchange on Brucevale Park?
My great granddad worked for the Belfast GPO as a Telegraphist and lived quite near this exchange (Annalee Street).
Could it have been one of the places, or THE place, where early telegraphs were received and sent?
Phil.
