or Orange Parade - looks to me like it is coming up
Weaver Vennel ... and that is where my Robb family lived. These row houses
were built in around 1892. My great grandfather, John Robb (1858-1939),
owned # 37 from day one. There are still Robb family/descendants in it
today. I am not sure of the date on this photo ... but your might be
able to determine the date by the clothing ... or if someone recognizes
someone in the parade.
