Nancy, I know that this is very simplistic and you have gotten more
comprehensive answers, but I just did this.
Go to Google, click on Maps, put in 105 Cupar Street Belfast, and behold!
Map, Satellite View and a picture and Street view. You can roam around the
present day neighborhood and maybe even decipher the graffiti. Buildings
all look pretty recent.
I also looked up the map on askaboutireland.ie/ Griffiths and I will send
you privately a screen shot as I am not sure the long link will actually
work. The slider on the actual map will let you go between the street maps
and the old buildings map. This is the link:

I find myself researching an Ulster Scot Presbyterian ancestor Isabella
Mitchell when many of mine are Irish catholic. I've been down that road and
know the research path. However a civil birth from the Irish Family History
Foundation gives the following for Isabella Mitchell born 4 Oct 1872, 105
Cupar Street, Urban 5 Belfast, female Antrim, father James Mitchell, mother
Mary Jane Cotton, sponsor Ann Douglass. Now how do I locate in some way
where in Belfast Urban 5 is? The parents James Mitchell and Mary Jane
Cotton were married 25 August 1871 both of Belfast, his father John, her
father Benjamin. Witnesses Joseph Johnston and Mary Jane Savage Church
College Square Presbyterian by license Rev. A. Gray
Any suggestions humbly accepted..
