  Robert, Scotia Street was just along from the Cambridge Cinema on the opposite side of the Road.

It ran from New City Road to Shamrock Street.

  When you mentioned the Hotel at Charing Cross I take it that you were talking about The Grand Hotel, I'm trying to pinpoint Scotia Street I know it but can't place it, it was a long time ago

  Sujay, I may have known your g'parents as the name does ring a bell, but after all these years I can't say for certain.
Did they live on the 2nd floor to the right???

We lived in the top flat on the left hand side hallway as you came up the stairs. Our windows looked on to the street and we lived there for 5 years,1958--1963.

Regards Susan

  You can only see small thumbnails on the free version of SCRAN here:

The two photos refer to a tenement collapse in Scotia Street in October 1968, apparently police and workers managed to save one Richard Fox who had been trapped in the rubble.
