As Richard says this one?

click to enlarge


Although it does look like many others around the area so it really could be anywhere - I also had a look to see if there was any references to the Curlett's and there are a couple of references to a Mr Curlett on site from as far back as 1883 (manning a Refreshment Stall at a bazaar) and then again in 1910 as a coal merchant - the 1901 census shows that in "House 4" Ballyrussell there was a Kathleen (14) John (48) Emily (40) Daniel (87) Ethel (13) Emily (11) all Church of Ireland - and an Ellen Rooney (20 and down here as a servant)

Thanks Pat, all I need now is a big red stripe down me wee Mitsibushi! By the way Brian and I have far too much hair to be Starsky and Hutch lookalikes! :D

Had a look around Ballydesland/russell area today, hard to pin-point the third last photo but it has to be around there somewhere.

On second thoughts...now I'm not so sure. The thatched cottage has a chimney stack that appears to be at the centre of the roof....the modern day house on Milltown Street has chimney stacks at either end.
Also, there is a pitched roof on the shed in the original photo yet in the modern photo the garage has a flat roof. Granted a lot can change in 100 years....I think Starsky & Hutch will have to do a few more patrols ! :))

Would love to pin point where on the Clontafleece Rd they were taken, although I heard they may be taken on the Ballydesland Rd just below Garrivan's. C'mon street view!!! ::-((

Go to Google maps - usually found through a Google search or on the navigation bar at a Google homepage (not Google earth) and then zoom in to where you want to be - you should see a little orange man on the left of the map - left click, hold and drag him onto the map and let him go on any blue lines that appear. If there are no blue lines then that area is not mapped and it wont work.

Do not drag the little Orange man down the Garvachy Rd (spelling)as this my lead to more riots :rotfl: :rotfl: :getmecoat:
