Lisburn Advent Calendar 2016 – Day 2: Piper’s Hill Looking Towards Hill Street


This photograph, by John Press, looks across to Hill Street from Piper’s Hill/Market Lane. On the right it the partially cleared site of the world-famous Coulson’s Damask factory, on the left is Barnsley’s Row.  Dates from the mid-1960s. Does anyone know what H. Elliott sold?

Each day this Advent, we will be sharing a different image of Lisburn and district from the museum’s collection.  Feel free to share them with your friends and family, and get in touch if you have memories of the area, or further pictures.
