THE MOAT 752
This is hard work cutting the grass on the Motte at Ballymena especially with
the boss watching you.
The year is 1899.
THE BLACKBOURNES 1598
Out for a walk in the fields with Granny Blackbourne in August 1947 we have
Cedric, Marnie, Doris and Liam Blackbourne. Marnie and Doris have different
coloured Lamb brooches on.
THE MOAT 3663
Here we are at the Moat at Ballymena when they had put wooden steps right
up to near the top. The people in the photograph are unknown just for not
taking the time to right their names on the back. They could be two couple
of friends or even a family. The two men look as if they are doing alright
for work. The girl does not have ring on her finger so it could be his sister
or even his girlfriend.
While the other could be mother and son and with the mother dressed in black
she sadly is mourning a loved one, perhaps her husband.
