Tidying up folders on a computer, I found some photos taken in Belfast. Alas I have no notes now, so don't know what street or what they are.....

The second one is the Donegall Street Congregational Church
From a tourist site
"The original church on this site was completed in
1860, with additions in 1871. It was rebuilt
following extensive bomb damage during the
Belfast Blitz of World War II. The style of the
reconstruction makes a sympathetic composition
with the older wing gables that frame it"

Third Building is at the junction of Howard St. & Brunswick St.
Look it up on Google maps.
The shop on the corner is Esler's Pharmacy

Last one is Nos. 51-59 Adelaide Street
From the UAHS book "Central Belfast"
"1903, as linen warehouse for Fiddes Todd & Curry: Five Storey red brick warehouse with dramatic roofline of pedimented dormers and corner chimney stacks, with ground and first floors forming a giant podium. Built in two stages, the doorcase of nos.51-53 bearing the date 1903 and monogram "FC Ltd", the other section with a more elaborate doorcase in brick & Terracotta. Carriageway entrance with bluestone setts and cast iron corner bollards. One of the least altered linen warehouses surviving in this area."
