Hi all. I grew up in Banning St and went to St Laurence's School. I have very happy memories of growing up and playing in the streets around Cathcart St, Conway St and St Ann St. Please does anyone have any photos of any of these streets? Id love to see them...I remember back in the 60's all the little two up two down houses, where you could leave your front door open.Would love to hear from anyone who went to St Laurences smile

Hi Netty, I lived in Banning street until I was 6 years old (1958).
Somebody has already posted pictures of Banning Street and Keigthly street ....I don't know how to access them but somebody will no doubt put a link up.

I do have a scan of a photograph of a bunch of ladies (including my mum Mona) posing for a "Banning Street Gang" day out with perhaps relatives of yours on...it was taken probably in the early 50'

I'll email it to you if you pm me.

Hi Torryman.
Thanks so much for your reply...nice to meet you! My family moved in to Banning St in I think 1942. I have three much older Brothers and two sisters. My eldest brother is John, then a sister Eileen and then Joseph.Mum and Dad were Eileen and John. I would love to see the photo, Mum and Dad have been gone 42 years and 33 years now....I miss them and often reflect about Banning St and St Laurences. Look forward to hearing from you torryman.

When you click on torryman's name, don't you get a drop-down box with "send a PM" one of the options?
