UNKNOWN SOLDIERS 1189
Sadly this portrait of the two young soldiers names are unknown. You can just
make out the leather boots with buckles on the soldier on the right so possibly
North Irish horse regiment.
Taken at The Ashleigh Studio 112 Royal Ave in Belfast.
UPPER MAIN STREET 543
This Upper Main Street in Randalstown, over to your right you can see
a water pump from which you could quench your thirst.
The car is an Austin, the model I'm not sure of.
It is around the 1960's.
UNDER THE ARCH 1195
Standing underneath the arch at Randalstown these five young men are waiting
for the procession to start. Behind them you can see some mothers
with their children waiting as well. The year is unknown but the style of
clothes could put it around the late 50's.
Taken at Booth & Milner Photographers Studio's in Randalstown the young
lady with the man are unknown and so is the year.
Looking at their faces they look like sister and brother, can anyone tell
me who they are?
Taken at Booth Photographer Studio's in Randalstown the young lady and the
year are unknown.
Here she is posing with a ladies bicycle but surely she didn't wear that hat
out cycling. The bike has only one brake, can anyone tell me how it worked?
UNKNOWN RIDER 2355
Here in the grounds of Shane's castle during a racing event this rider poses
for a photograph.
His name is unknown and also the year.
UNKNOWN GIRL 2396
Sadly this lovely young girl in this studio photograph is unknown to me.
All I know is that the photograph was taken at Abernethy's Studios at 29 High
Street Belfast, they also had a branch at 115 Albertbridge Road Belfast.
Once more taken from a Randalstown photo album this studio photograph of the
lady with such long hair and a hair brush in her hand is Unknown.
This studio photograph which could have been taken in Randalstown the young
lady with the 1920's stylish looking hat is sadly Unknown, unless you
know better. If you do please let me know.
Sitting in her back garden all smiles the lady is unknown. Taken sometime
in the 1940's as you can tell by the 'Anderson Shelter' which was supposed
to protect you from falling bombs. It was dug down into the ground ans as
a result when it rained you ended up with a foot of water in it.
UNKNOWN LADY 3388
The apprehensive lady having her photograph is Unknown but the photograph
came out of an Album in Randallstown.
Now if you know this lady please contact me to correct this information.
HAVING FUN 3393
Taken in the 1920's this daring couple decided to have some fun for the camera
while crossing a bridge.
The girl looks quite relaxed and smiling at the photographer while the young
man is smiling too and who wouldn't be back then.
The photograph was taken out of a Randalstown album but sadly no names where
written on the back of it or in the album.
Even now with digital cameras, phones ect; a lot of people do not bother with
information, but they will regret it in later years.
UNKNOWN SOLDIER'S WEDDING
Here we are at a soldier's wedding who is in a Scottish Regiment, I cannot
make out his badge to say which regiment. The Scottish regiments did not just
come from Scotland but from all over England and there was even one from Ireland!
The photograph seems to have been taken at the back of the Church
And the minister was Lutheran and boy he looks like he'd take no nonsense,
even sitting between the bride and groom, no holding hands here. If the photo
had been in colour I could have said what he was. His cap known as a Glengarry
and was made of wool was tilted over the right ear and more on the forehead,
this was stopped after WWII and worn straight The trim around his Glengarry
was in three sets of colours: the Red, White and blue was worn by the Royal
Regiments and the other trim was Red, White and Green for all other regiments.
Sadly I do not know anyone in the photograph please let know and I will send
you a copy. All I can say is that I hope this photgraph was taken after the
Great War so they could have a happy life.
