About this photo

This handsome edifice catered for those needing help from all over the province. When it was new in 1845, it was described as being on the new Lisburn Road about a furlong from the turnpike. Its 225ft frontage, along with two wings extending to the rear, shows what could, and had to be done, by charity. At the time there was a substantial income; but the estimated cost was seven times greater, and a further appeal had to be made. The satisfaction of the subscribers was ensured by employing the leading Belfast architect, and clearly he was not restricted in his art. The foundation stone was laid by Lord Donegall, using a silver trowel.
