    Daz wow, major dual carriage way now !! Small plaque on the wall where the pits used to be. After you go around quarry corner it is pretty much as it always was until you get to Newtonards.

    Is it possible that this picture was actually taken from the railway bridge (now gone) on the way into Newtownards? The 'pits' on the right look like a makeshift shelter behind a stone wall.

    I have just been to look at the location pictured on the way into Newtownards and the middle house is still particularly recognizable.The houses are now largely hidden by trees. Another shot in this 1931 collection taken looking under the footbridge at the pits (the Charles Goodacre, G V B Cooke, H D Parker, H I Robinson photo) is very different.

    Yes, I agree. This shot was taken from the railway bridge coming into Newtownards looking back up towards Belfast (this is the Belfast Road). I used to live in one of the houses on the right and my wife used to live in Manse Road, the little road in the photo on the left.
