York Street Flax Spinning Company had a mill here and this is Abbeyview
at Muckamore and these were the mill workers houses. The larger houses at
either end of the row housed the 'Gaffers '. The large house to your left
with the shop and the sign saying "Muckamore" was the Post Office
and the one at the far end was the General Store. Standing in the doorway
of the shop is a lady with a baby in her arms with two small girls to the
left and a boy to the right. Now they and the ladies and children along
the street are not there by chance, the photographer made them stand there
and be still while he took the photograph.The row of houses behind them
are called Raceview because they are near the mill race. As you can see
from the Present photo they have not changed a bit. Date is unknown.
