He is now searching for information on photographs he received from his grandmother many years ago, in particular, of the three people pictured (see adjacent photograph). They are Miss Alexander, James Alexander (son of Sam Alexander) and Mrs Sam Alexander and are featured on a photograph dated August 16, 1947.

Mr Tureski would like to hear from anyone who could provide information on any or all of the trio and/or background on the Alexander store of the time on Church Street which now houses ‘McKillen’s of Ballymena’
