Fantastic collection Richard and thanks for going to such trouble scanning and posting these photos. ..I know that task can be quite time consuming and tedious !

I feel the Newry & Mourne Museum and even the Ulster Museum would be very interested in these....not just the usual suspects on 'Old Warrenpoint' !!!! I look forward to seeking the rest of the collection...this is much better than anything on TV !

Yeah, they're great!!
My fav in this collection is the one of the castle with the lanterns on the posts! Is the railway to this side or the far side of the fence?

Can anyone identify the shop / shop owner on Charlotte Street?? (I dont have the answer, in case you think I have!!) ~x(

It's amazing to zoom in on the street scenes and move up and down the street using the horizontal and vertical slider bars. For those who aren't sure how to zoom, hold down Control key and move the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. There seems to be a big crown outside the bazaar on Church Street!
