Former Robinson & Cleaver building, Belfast (2)
Built in 1886/88 Cleaver’s, at the corner of Donegall Place and Donegall Square North, is one of the highlights of the remaining bits of Victorian Belfast. It is exceptionally rich in detail. This is but a sample of what is to be seen on the Donegall Square North façade.
Robinson & Cleaver, Belfast


Robinson & Cleaver (usually “Cleaver's”), at the corner of Donegall Place and Donegall Square North, was, by far, Belfast’s most exclusive department store. It was completed in 1888, by H&J Martin, to a design by Young and Mackenzie. The external features include turrets, clocks and embellishment in the form heads and busts. Internally the staircase was one of its notable features. Another victim of the changing shopping pattern caused by the bombing campaign, it eventually closed later being converted to offices with the ground floor let as shops.
