    City Hall, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

     

    Plans for the City Hall began in 1888 when Belfast was awarded city status by Queen Victoria. This was in recognition of Belfast's rapid expansion and thriving linenrope-makingshipbuildingand engineering industries. During this period Belfast briefly overtook Dublin as the most populous city on the island of Ireland.[2]

    Construction began in 1898 under the supervision of architect Sir Alfred Brumwell Thomas and was completed in 1906 at a cost of £369,000. Local firms H&J Martin and WH Stephens were among the companies involved in construction.

    The city hall in DurbanSouth Africa is almost an exact replica of Belfast's City Hall {source?}. It was built in 1910 and designed by Stanley G. Hudson, who was inspired by the Belfast design. The Port of Liverpool Building, designed by Arnold Thornley and completed in 1913, is another very close relative. [3]

    On August 1, 2006 the city hall celebrated its centenary with a "Century Of Memories" exhibition and family picnic day.[4]
