On 22 August 1981 a bomb exploded outside offices in nearby Upper Queen Street, causing blast damage to this building in College Square East. Replacement of the glazing was underway. Blast damage made the scene look worse – relatively few buildings (in central Belfast anyway) were demolished because of structural damage.
