It's a lovely summer's day here in Bangor although Sadie Heron is keeping
her coat on. In front of her the lad is unknown holding his bucket and spade
which were made of tin is heading for the beach to try them out. He's very
smartly dressed in his suit and tie to be going to build sand castles. When
you look at Sadie and all the people in the photograph looking so relaxed
and enjoying the sunshine, it's hard to belive that World War 2 is raging
in Europe for this photograph was taken in July 1940.

THE HERRONS 3410
Outside their thatched cottage at Ballycraigy in Glengormley we have Robert
Herron who was a farmer and his wife Sarah.
Now Sarah is wearing a full pinafore which most ladies wore to protect their
clothes while working. While Robert is wearing the usual braces which all
men and boys wore even with short trousers. You see mothers and mine included
would buy you a pair of trousers usually about two sizes bigger so you got
a longer time wearing them and saved the family a bit of money. I can remember
complaining about them being too big in the waist and mum would say "
Don't worry you'll grow into them."
You will also notice Robert's shirt has no collar, it's not that he is being
trendy its just that when you were at home or working on the farm you didn't
wear one only when you were going out. It was called a stud collar and it
was starched so that it was stiff and fitted on to the back of the shirt with
a stud, they could be very uncomfortable.

before the courthouse is the breadman delivering the bread from his horse
The year is unknown.
HIGH STREET 691
This picture of High Street in 1942, but can you spot the clue that war was
still raging in mainland Europe? If you look closely at the Massereene Arms
Hotel in the centre of the picture you can see a flag inviting punters to
the 'American Lounge Bar', which was very popular with the Gis stationed in
the town! Other shops caught on camera include Clarke's Shop, The Castle and,
of curse, Halls Hotel. Standing outside the Massereene is a policeman and
a lady is passing by with her shopping basket and dog. Perhaps she was on
her way to the Castle for an ice-cream and some cigarettes.
HIGH STREET 690
Not to many shoppers around in this photograph and no cars but they did
have gas street lighting. The little girl standing in the street has no shoes
and on the
other side of street outside the Massereene Arms Hotel is a Hansom Cab.
The year is unknown.
