South Belfast by Norman L. Weatherall
Book DescriptionSouth Belfast, as we know it today, is a creation of the nineteenth century; when people began to move to new suburbs from the old town centre and the countryside. Unlike the industrial East and West, South Belfast developed as a mainly residential quarter, but one with a distinctly bohemian flavour. "South Belfast: History and Guide" takes us along the Golden Mile, through the Botanic Gardens, and to the Knockbreda cemetery, where some of Belfast's most influential citizens are buried. It looks at the practicalities of life in the area and the origins of its street names - a perennial subject for light-hearted debate. Weatherall and Templeton take us past the homes of literary and industrial giants and explore the area's sparkling artistic history, all the while unearthing the fiery arguments that accompanied each new stage of development in this beautiful part of the city.

South Belfast was at the end of a natural route along which people from the heart of Ulster passed in search of work in the city. Their homes were very different from the middle class housing on Malone Road. But everyone, rich and poor, could enjoy the amenities in the public parks. This title covers many aspects of the area and of everyday life.
