Yep, thats the one. Not to be confused with the Belle Vue cafe, just down the street a bit :D

They seem to have gone to great lengths here to distinguish them selves from the boarding house :rotfl:

And correct on Jimmy Campbell - I have to get back to the person who gave me the photo for more details.

Yes it is Joanne. i can only remember a Miss Mc Corry living there in the late 60s, she was a teacher in St Peters. It was owned at one time by Raymond O Hare when it was turned into flats.

I am sure I noticed a planning application in the local papers a while back for this house.The proposal was for the demolition of the house and the bungalow behind it,and the building of five new apartments
