It's a small street in behind UTV studios on the Ormeau Road - doesn't seem to exist any more.  It was  between the UTV Internet logo and Walnut Street on the attached link to Google Maps

Ah Brilliant, thanks for that. I presume it was probably terraces? It transpires from his birth certificate that my Great grandfather was born in Outram street.

Outram Street was still there in 1911 census- search with 'outram' as townland/street and then click on a name to get link to details about occupants, houses, etc.

Hi
I am also doing some family research and my Great great Grandparents  lived in Outram street between 1908-1922. His name was James Swan and his son was called James also. His son
(my great granda) met his future wife rebecca ellen johnston who lived at number 36. They married in 1926.

Lennon wylie has street directories which show outram street and its residents

How wonderful to hear about your familys connection to Outram Street.

My family lived in Outram Street in 1880, so a bit before your family. I had a look on the street directories but couldnt see them, I wonder if they perhaps lodged with someone, or lived there only for a short time, as I know they moved to Walmer Street.

Rebecca was my great aunt, did you find any information about her as I am researching my family and we might have some information to share, especially as we are related.
