Caption for Belfast, Queen's Square 1897: Its quays were once the heart of Belfast the port, and there is no doubt that the remains of Chichester Quay on the right and Hanover Quay on the left will be found below the cobblestones. The square had reached what was to be the height of its dignity, though the row of buildings on the left was modest enough. Some of its very old houses survived until recently. Air raids in 1941 destroyed the fine Georgian buildings opposite the Customs House. Commerce and travellers were served by the stand of jaunting cars. Drivers at Botanic Gardens contributed £10 towards the cost of the Queen Victoria Statue now in front of the City Hall.

Her mother was Margaret Kahey, but, for this Margaret, I have no dates and no parents. (...Read full memory)
