Shore Road Belfast – 1966 Video

In my last post I shared some pictures of the Jamison garage and houses at 265-269 Shore Road, Belfast, that stood until their demolition in the 1980s; on the site now stands a printing shop.

The pictures were screen grabs from a  video of Belfast in 1966, which Jimmy, a member of the Belfast forum, has posted on Youtube:

Of particular interest to me and my fellow Jamisons are the first 35 seconds or so, which consist of footage of a trolleybus going up and down the stretch of Shore Road at Fortwilliam, which is where the family houses and garage stood.

You can see the houses and garage at 265-269 Shore Road at the 8 second, 18 and 21-25 seconds mark of the video.

With thanks again to Jimmy for his kind permission to repost this great video.
