Between J3474 : Former Ulster Bank, Belfast (detail) and J3374 : Former Methodist church, Belfast the Ulster Bank’s head office was this (middle) purpose-built building in Donegall Place. Now the tourist information office. The ground floor (which extends back to Fountain Street) has always been occupied by Boots. Boots’ original Belfast shop was a small one in Cornmarket – a site which was (if my memory is correct) re-occupied for a short time after bomb damage to the Donegall Place/Fountain Street premises.
