Braeside, Comber

Adrian Hanna of Comber Historical Society emailed me a few weeks ago to tell me about the society's new website. Comber, like so many of Hamilton & Montgomery's towns and villages, has numerous old Scots-influenced street names, some of which are only remembered by the older generation. Below is a photo of one that's still in use. I was told the other day that the Bushmills Distillery owns the defunct Old Comber Whiskey brand, and occasionally produce a few bottles of the stuff to maintain the trademark. Drool over the beautiful old labels here (metaphorically of course)!.
