Looking South
This is a very early shot from the Town Hall looking across Conway Square and down South Street towards Comber.
The bus in the centre was the McCartneys Belfast - Newtownards one and many customers would spend the night in Appersons Temperance Hotel awaiting the Portaferry bus the next day.  On the corner of South Street stands McAdoos Drapers which previously was Lairds the Tailors and is now i believe Hills,..  To the right of the hotel is the Arcadia which sold household and fancy goods and in the square right where currently stands Caffollas
was Morrows Pharmacy.
