Shaftesbury Square Hospital, Belfast

Built in 1867, to a design by WJ Barre, as the Ophthalmic Hospital, Gt Victoria Street, and extended, in the same style, in 1928 (the different brick is still discernible in the bay to the south). Charlie Brett noted “it has no hint of the pomposity usual in public buildings of the period”.
