J3373 : Linenhall Street, Belfast

taken 14 years ago, near to Shankill, Belfast County Borough, Beal Feirste, Springfield and Ballymacarret, Northern Ireland

Linenhall Street, Belfast
Linenhall Street, Belfast
Linenhall Street (named after the old white-linen hall) was once home to many linen warehouses. After sliding into something approaching oblivion in the 70’s and early 80’s it has seen quite a bit of re-development. There are several new and recent buildings and one of the old warehouses was sympathetically restored as offices. There are also several coffee and sandwich shops and a restaurant. The street does not really go anywhere and is not a through route. On Saturdays and Sundays it is almost devoid of pedestrians. This is the view north to the rear entrance to the City Hall.
For comparison see J3373 : Linenhall Street, Belfast (June 2017).
Belfast City Hall

Belfast City Hall was built in 1896/1906, by H&J Martin LinkExternal link to a design by Brumwell Thomas. It replaced the White Linen Hall (1785-1896) LinkExternal link (“white” refers to the colour of the linen rather than the building) on the same site in the middle of Donegall Square. Apart from its architectural merits and being the seat of the City Council it tends to be the place from where directions are given.
