Warrenpoint Square 1900

Click to Enlarge (720k)

I have made this a "clickable" image as it was too big to post by itself.

this picture comes from the 100th anniversery edition of the Belfast Telegraph printed in 1970 that greengrass brought round to me last night.

I had to scan it in two sections and then join it, but thanks to modern technology it came out ok. :D

Great photo, Brian! Although in our youth we referred to that corner as the "Provincial Bank Corner", my mother called it Pedlow's Corner. Now I see why!

Probably writing a ticket for the cart driver in the foreground for speeding and driving without due care and attention. if the skid marks behind his waggon are anything to go by, that chap on the brickwork crossing had a lucky escape methinks.... :D

I have read about Pedlows, but never knew where it was. Does anyone know when it closed?
