Name & Place look up in Belfast- 68 Donegall Pass
« on: Thursday 31 August 17 16:51 BST (UK) »
I found a photo of my grandma in Perth (Scotland) 1951 and there is a name and address on the back. I tried to type in the name on ancestry but didn't get much luck.
My nana was a speciality dancer and travelled uk in her younger days. She is about 22 in the picture as born in 1925.
written on the back it says Mrs P.Copbey, 68 donegall Pass, Belfast, N. Ireland

Just wondered if anyone could help.

Thanks
