Photo of Sammy Simmons, Chesney, Aicken

Here is a lovely old photograph of Main Street in Portglenone, most likely taken in the late 1950s.  

It shows Sammy Simmons confectionary store, D.H. Chesney’s petrol pump, Robert Aicken’s clothing store, as well as the Post Office

Note the lack of cars, only one TV aerial, and the number of push-bicycles in the image.
