St. George (stained glass)

Ward and Campbell Brothers, Franklin Street


City Hall, Donegall Square, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Brett characterizes the magnificent interior of the City Hall, splendid even when compared to the halls and rotundas of Canadian legislatures and American state Capitols, as "ornate in a moderately restrained way" (p. 55). The Italian marble glows, the rococo plasterwork is impeccable, the overall effect dazzling, particularly of the great dome about the great circular stair-well and lobby.
