St. George's Market by J. C. Bretland. 1896. May Street, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Text and photograph by Philip V. Allingham 2006. This image may be used without prior permission for any scholarly or educational purpose.
The glass-roofed market, which is now open only Friday and Saturday mornings, is located just south of the city-centre, near the Lagan River and the Albert Bridge. Despite its essentially utilitarian nature, the building, covering a full city block, has some elegant elaboration. It is currently undergoing some restoration to replace the knops and ironwork.
