University Avenue, Belfast (October 2017)
A mainly Victorian Street running from Rugby Road to the Ormeau Road. This is the northern side from the corner of Carmel Street. Its history can be illustrated using old street directories.
1877 there was just one house “Rodgers, John, manager Henry Matier & Co [Henry Matier & Co., cambric handkerchief and linen manufacturers and merchants, 10 Waring Street]”.
1880 three houses “1. Rodgers, John, manager 2. Leitch, Matthew, professor of Biblical Criticism 3. Rodgers, Dr. John, professor of sacred rhetoric & catechetics [the branch of theology dealing with the instruction given to Christians before baptism or confirmation.]”.
1890 “Botanic Avenue to Caledonia Street no houses in this avenue”. Possibly some demolition work had taken place.
In 1901 some houses were still under construction but the completed and occupied odds numbered 65-141 and the evens 26-172.
