Mum says that Miss McLoughlin lodged beside them with Miss Steenson (Mrs Borhill) in 31 Church street (Now Boyle's casino/bingo hall)

This was taken in the back garden of 33 Church Street, and I don't have all the names, but I do have:
Back row L-R Charlie McCabe (postman and my great grandfather) Joe McCabe (grandfather) - unknown -
Front row L-R Billy McCabe (great Uncle) - unknown - Freddie McCabe (great uncle)


Brian, been reviewing these posts as they reappear, it`s surprising what you miss first time around...............

The unknown person in the backrow, right of picture is the late Charlie Davis, a market gardener himself, probably learned his skills from your great grandfather.................................................

Thanks for the name Northbrook, I added it to the picture. Pauline, mum told me that once they went to visit Miss McLoughlin in Limavady (where she moved to when she left the point) after being invited over for tea. She tells me that she was a completely different person, and they had a pleasant visit complete with the best china on view :D

Pleasant????? My knuckles are still cringing - I was left handed till she got at me with a ruler and now I'm right handed. Funny how your head doesn't always adjust though. I can't play golf with my husband because I have a natural left handed grip and a right handed stance (you'll only understand that if you play golf). He say 'Lucky Break'!! The other teacher I remember (apart from Victor Creanor) was Yolande Weir. Wonder where she went. Wonder if anyone remembers the day VC caned the whole class except for his son - he said that he had taught the whole class some mathematical process but funny his son was the only one who could do it. He lined us all up boys down one side of the class and girls down the other and proceeded to WHACK.

Yolande Weir is still living outside Newry, I have seen her in Newry on a few occasions but never got a chance to speak to her as she was in her car each time. She doesn't look a whole lot different than she did back then. I really liked her, she was a good teacher...

Coincidental that Pauline remembers her teacher for this. Brian's mother remembers that the
teacher lodged with Miss Steenson, next door. My mother went to learn to play the piano
with Miss Steenson and I never forget her complaining that Miss Steenson beat the knuckles
of her. The two ladies obviously had a thing about knuckles!!

Brain that was a lovely piece of your family history and of course the shop. The photos were superb. Thanks for putting them up. You were such a wee cutie in your younger days. Nearly like me???

Afternoon tea in Church Street - and I can assure you there was not a shop bought item on those plates :D

We are not sure of the occasion, may have been a birthday tea, boxing day or something like that.

Sorry Brian but i have been too long away from the town to be able to identify the youngster in the picture of the party. However the one of Gran McCabe with Victor and Gregory and the mammy was right down my street in memory lane. The other character Roy Colvin stirs the memory a little, when i visited Dromore Road school a few weeks ago i noticed on my wander around that the old toilet block at the rear wall is still there. Its not used as a toilet now but for storing bins with the toilets and urinal removed. I remember three guys i.e myself, Roy and i think Kenny Purdy at the urinal one day and being little boys were trying to see who could pee the highest and if we could get it over the wall. We were all laughing and Roy[ who we called Boxer for some reason] got real elevation. The only problem it was it went straight up in the air and came right down again into his mouth. Boy did we laugh, even Roy.

What's that saying again.. oh yes "too much information" :rotfl:

I forgot to fill in the info here, but the young chap with Nellie would be Victors oldest son Christopher - he never had Red hair though (must be the old photograph inks doing that) but he (like myself) would quite like a head of hair like that now :D

Brian. You know the old saying "grass does not grow on a busy street". Me, i have been thinking of growing the Bobby Charlton look but i would probably be dead before it was long enough.

The 'unknown aunt' is aunt Lizzie McClements Granny McCabe's sister in law. Her son John took the picture - he was a great photographer and there was an exhibition of his work shortly after he died in Lancaster. John's wife Mary still keeps in touch with us.

Could that be Alynn Thomas' dad? He died when I was only a few years old so I never really knew him. Bell or Alynn might know.

I had the nickname 'spider' because of my terrible writing so I suffered more 'knuckle raps' than most. I got a double helping when I didn't practice before my piano lesson! Made me vow never to inflict any physical punishment during my 38 yrs of teaching!!

Where was that taken Brian? I recognise the chairs but not the dresser in the background. Is that Peter the budgie in cage?

As some of you know the 1901 census is out now, and I see that our family were in 12 east Street back then - so I was wrong to assume that we lived in Summerhill first - The things you learn. :D

EDIT:

On further investigation all is not as it seems, I think the census enumerator simply walked up and down east street/summer hill numbering as they went as the 1901 documents shows east street as having 29 houses ;--) See my explanation in the 1901 census thread:

It asks to include whether the person can read and write, read only or write only.
