A window, now without glass, at second-floor level.
University Street/Mount Charles, Belfast

A row, at the University Road end of the northern side of University Street. It baffled me when I first saw it sometime around 1968. It was a piece of apparently-derelict architectural incongruity without any obvious place in which anyone could live. The properties had a Dickensian feel – the Belfast equivalent of the Artful Dodger, bent on some nefarious mission, might emerge at any moment. They are, for all intents and purposes, unchanged in 2014 and still a sight to behold. The difference is that I now know them to be the disused backs and yards of some buildings on the southern side of Mount Charles J3372 : Mount Charles, Belfast (3 of 4). All can be revealed by a look at the Google satellite photograph. The colour of brick is unusual but similar to J3374 : Door, no 7 Chichester Street, Belfast J3374 : College Place North, Belfast and J3473 : Joy Street, Belfast.
