dead in a Belfast street on an August afternoon, 76 years ago in some other

between workers and police during a massive strike? The caption on the
postcard doesn't say what role Margaret played that day, or if she was just
a passerby who became a victim. Margaret Lennon, 52 Conway Street & Charles
McMullan, 44 Conway Street. Both shot Monday 12th August 1907 at Peel
