Greenwell Street - Newtownards

Here is an old photograph of Greenwell Street, Newtownards in the late 1960's.

As you can just see, the street on the left hand side is in the process of being demolished - making way for a new development, this is where my Grandmother Prudence & Grandfather Johnny lived.

Prior to that, my Grandfather Johnny, was raised by his aunt - Aunt Jane, with his brother William - more on William later, he died during WW I - and was a dispatch rider at that time.

Notice the distinct lack of motor vehicles on the road either parked or being driven!

If you noticed Blakley's Glorious Traditions painting in a previous post, it was set here - but in colour, the parade passed Granny's house along the famous old street.
