Annadale Flats, Belfast
Annadale Flats, Belfast
In the years after the end of WWII there was a movement (or, perhaps, even a fad) in public sector housing for flat roofs and geometrically straight lines. Annadale Flats remains one of the greats of that era although it took the movement in a different direction by spreading the properties along the embankment by the Lagan when others were being built in as clusters in estates. Now a remarkable example of a period when economic expansion and a brave new world beckoned.
Incidentally the name “Annadale” is said to come from the earlier estate on the site – that of Lady Anne Mornington, mother of the Duke of Wellington and is thought to be a variation of her name to “Annadale” “Anne's Dale”.
