Shropshire Lookup Requests / A Week in Shrewsbury.
« on: Thursday 21 May 09 12:22 BST (UK)  »
I hope to go to Shrewsbury for a week in the late Summer DV.

If anyone had photographs of the following places that I might familiarize myself with them before going.

a.    St. Mary's Street, Shrewsbury.
b.    2 Quarry Place,       ditto
c.    14 St. John's Hill,     ditto
d.    Dogpole Chambers Shrewsbury.
e.    Whitehouse, Kingsland,  ditto.

The above are places associated with Alexander Graham, Recorder of Bridgenorth from 1905 to ( at least ) 1933.

Antrim Completed Look up Requests / Glengormley House
« on: Thursday 23 April 09 18:52 BST (UK)  »
The Cave Hill with its majestic "nose" overlooks Belfast, as we all know. I grew up in the vacinity of Antrim Road, Glengormley and was always quite familiar with that area. There is one area called Colinward near to Glengormley and adjacent to the Whitewell area and it has its own castle; Colinward Castle (long since gone). One other thought worth mentioning is that the Cave Hill got its name from the caves, when its proper name was Colinward.

Yours, etc.,
