Sir Crawford McCullagh Belfast's Dick Whittington by Susan B Cunningham...Sir Crawford was Lord Mayor of Belfast through 2 World wars, he has been forgotten in the mists of time but this biography brings him back to life. A fascinating story.

I will do that thank you Soozie. I remember walking up to the Abbeydene gate lodge to collect banty eggs for my grandmother, a Mr. Bingham lived in it then would be about early seventies.
