Help with question re. Belfast Building

Postby Musgrave » Fri May 23, 2008 10:34 am

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help with research I am carrying out on a building in Belfast, I do not have any background in architecture etc so I am hoping someone may be able to point me in the right direction. The building in question was built as a Royal Irish Constabulary Barrack in or around 1892-94 at Musgrave Street in Belfast. It still survives today but is currently being demolished. It's planning and erection was overseen by the Board of Works, Dublin and I believe they had their own architects who would have designed Public Buildings. Does anyone know how I can trace who the designer/architect would have been and anything about the builder? I have seen the original plans which were approved in 1891 but their are no details of architect etc. I have also consulted with Public Records, Newspaper Libraries, Irish Builder mag but so far have found nothing of great relevance. If anyone feels they can help please let me know.

Your only man is Dr Paul Larmour, Architectural Historian found at the Arch dept in Queens Uni Belfast
He'd be worth emailing ....
