Post by: archie m on November 21, 2009, 11:30:27 PM
Does anybody remember the old street names you grew up with.sadly most of these st names have dissapeared when they rearrange our little town and some of the streets have been renamed or gone forever.

The area in between the Woodstock Road, Williowfield Street, the Castlereagh Road and the Beersbridge Road is all gone now with the exception of Euston Street. I was born in this area in Frankfort Street. My dad's family lived in Ashfield  Street and my mum's family lived in Belmont Street. The great thing we saw when we went there in 2006 is that the building that used to be the bank on the corner of Woodstock Road and Belmont Street was still there. Belmont Street is gone but the street sign was still attached to the old bank building.

Quite a few streets disappeared off the Grosvenor Rd. I'm not sure if leeson St  or part of it is gone, certainly where my Granny lived at #188 is gone. Her house was next door to the Bush Bar on the corner of Mc Donald St. It was always an adventure visiting that house in the 60's and 70's, almost like a trip back in time as the culture then was pretty much as it was in the previous forty years.
Anyone familiar with the area at this time will perhaps remember Danny Farrell's on the Grosvenor Rd, Soappys shop in Slate St or the wonderful taste of Fusco's chips, now they were ledg. only bettered by Rossi's in Atlantic Ave. Lets face no place could match Belfast for Chip Shops

Balaclava St in the Lower Falls has disappeared. One unique thing about Balaclava St is that the top half of the street was spelt Balaklava St whilst the bottom half was spelt Balaclava St. It was one of the biggest streets in the Lowe Falls and unfortunately therefore tended to become a focal point during the troubles.

My uncle in Toronto wanted the old street sign of where he used to live ( Clementine Street ) and I'm not sure who my cousin contacted on his behalf but they were quite willing to ship it over to Canada to him as Sandy Row was undergoing big changes then including renaming the streets. However because it was so heavy, and would have cost a small fortune to ship, my uncle declined. I believe my cousin then called the Ulster Folk Museum and as far as I know they jumped at the chance to have it.

 :hi: Thanks Dimples and the other posters! I have just sent a Shankill Road workmate home with a sore head.I can not remember the street name and neither can he.His best quess is that it was "The Henhouse".The only reason I was curious was due to the fact, myself and classmates,were bussed from our "wee" school in Sandy Row,to sit the "11 Plus". I thought the whole exam was "wee buns" and was clock watching and remember the teacher telling us that if we needed extra paper,to raise our hands.
 
I have it in my head that the exam.involved a "wee story" and I was dipping my nib into the ink well and scraping away like Billyo and used the big white sheet of paper to complete the story as the official form had been filled up.
 
I was a wee bit baffled as to why my writing was going a bit funny and when the wee woman called "time",realised too late,that the big white piece of paper was "blotting paper". Up to then,school blotting paper was pink in colour,at least in our wee school!
 
Apparently,I did "rightly" in the exam., but as the fella said,"Close,but no cigar!" :scratch_ones_head:

Hello Pennywhistle long time no hear I hope your well do you remember Nubia Street of the Donegal Road I wonder if its still there I worked in the Star in the 60s the best place to work in at that time I was just going through the threads and found this one ...

Hi Helena, I remember Nubia Street  and also the Star factory - my Auntie Chrissie used to work there a long time ago - Just around the corner was St. Simon's Primary School which I went to for a couple of yrs - just did p5 and p7 - skipped p5! anyway here's a foto I took a few weeks ago when we were over there on hols. I took it of the school, tho its a now a youth drop in centre, it was closed the day we were there otherwise I'd have gone in and had a wee duke at it. I'm afraid the Star is no longer there. - its a brand new building which house Douglas and Grahame, a company who supply men's and boy's clothing to the retail trade.  sorry I don't have a pic of it but if you type in donegall road/nubia street into the google search engine and select maps, you can go to 'street view' and see what it looks like now.

Grosvenor Place, Lesson St, McDonald St, Granville St, Ward St, Merrion St, Gibson St, Theodore St, Abyssinia St, Lincoln st the last Sorella St at the Dunville Park.

I lived in Santiago Street. It ran at the top of Bromley Street & Madras Street. No longer there. Where my house was ( no.18 ) is now a continuation of the two streets mentioned. Horseshoe shaped now. Remember the gospel hall at the end of the street, waste geound also that I used to throw a ball for my dog to go fetch. Used to be a garage beside the gospel hall. Waste ground then turned into garages.

It isnt so much bout the street names, certain buildings have gone like schools and churches, the community spirit that once thrived in the terraced streets and buildings has gone. They tell us change is good but is it always good and what is so good about the change. The only good thing is they can remove street names and buildings but they cant erase the memories.

hi Dockersdaughter.  Sorry about your dads accident.  I left school in 1964 and worked at the Belfast Co-op for 6 yearrs.  I remember visiting my granny in Dimsdale street, going back to the 1950s.  I think it was blocked off by a wall at the end of the street.  I think I was also related to Isa McFadden as well who lived in the street.

            gone now like lots more,also in view of all the hype about  ''Titanic '' why  was
              '' White Star Street '' done away with ?  Another lovely odd  old one was

 only one with the odd numbers on the left hand side .Lavinia St had no No 13.

divorce was very rare back then, but remarriage was common as lots of people died young, of diseases that are routine now. Many women died in child birth, men always remarried if they had kids.

I grew up in Hutchinson Street Grosvenor Road, my brothers were George, Billy and Mervyn Johnston my name is Valerie does anyone remember any off us?  I remember the bad floods back about 1963-66 we left the area in 1967 Hutchinson street and Durham Street were flooded knee deep, my dad had his photo in the paper, carrying a girl across Durham Street, just in front off the mill she was wearing a leopard skin coat and a very short Mini skirt, sadly mum threw my copy of the photo when we were moving house , mum and dad are both deceased now I can't remember the name off the local paper it was in, I  would love a copy off that photo if anyone has it
Hi valkillow, I remember Hutchinson St or as we used to say " are ye going round Hutchy to play". I used to go to Sunday school there and go on the Sunday school trips to the seaside. The bus would come and pick us up and our mammys would wave us off, with not a worry as they knew we would be safe. Then we would play at the seaside and assemble in a church hall and have sandwiches, cakes and tea from a huge teapot with the milk already in it. No squash or Cola in those days, only Robinsons Barley water at Christmas. We always brought our mums back a wee ornament. The name Mervyn rings a bell but not your other brothers, can I ask how old he is? Lilian

When I was born, we lived on Matlock Street which is gone now. We moved away when I was about 3 years old so I had no memory of where exactly it was located. All I knew was that it was off the Shankill Rd, near to where the Shankill Estate is now. I managed to find an old map online that seems to show where it was.

Amazing I left belfast when I was 14 years I have fond memories of Belgrave street. I guess you never lived there yourself. I went to Blenheim junior school and then to hemsworth square school. I live in Canada now and have only been back home once since the development of the area. I am new to belfast form and trying to find my way around the site. I am not that great with computers,
