Early (Pre.1900) pic of Colonel Francis Octavius Montgomery Commanding Officer
of the North Down Rifles. Taken outside Regent House which was in 1863 Erasmus Smiths School
and later the headquarters of the Northern Ireland Military who had previousely been in Church Street
then Newtownards Academy and then Regent House Grammar School
My old friend Stewart McClean thinks Newtownards Academy was actually on the corner of West Street - Mary Street ,.
