To be more correct, it was St. Catherine’s Terrace which was altered from St Aubyns to Albany Villas. The private roadway, forecourts and gardens had to be sacrificed so as to widen this busy dangerous stretch of road. The proposal aroused much controversy in view of the possible elimination of the inner service road beyond Albany Villas. This photograph, taken 1st August 1965, shows where the widening would start – from St Aubyns, across Seafield Road to Osborne Villas. Here one looks at the private roadway and the garden in front of Nos. 3-16 between Osborne Villas and St Catherine’s Lodge Hotel. St Catherine’s Terrace, part of Cliftonville, was built during the 1850’s six houses being mentioned in Taylor’s Directory of 1854. Doubtless these four houses, the pavement and roadway looked the same in 1968 as they did when laid out 110 years previously.
