Description

First published in 1877, George Benn's seminal A History of the Town of Belfast continues to be very much in demand.

With information on the topography of Belfast city; the history of the Presbyterian church; tenant rights; trade, industry and communications; water supplies; contemporary demographics; educational institutions; and, notable individuals and families, Benn's lively, accessible and sometimes quirky approach to history makes this book an essential text for students, academics, genealogists and local historians, as well as anyone with an interest in Irish History up to the Victorian era.

This facsimile edition reproduces the original text, maps and illustrations, and includes new supplementary material, such as a preface, a list of corrections and a revised index.
