What looks like one of the old public toilets is on the right of the photo and behind it is a building with a lot of design on it  Unlike the square flat buildings that they are building now.  ;)

The Dunville Park, when it was a beautiful place.  It was built on land donated to the city by the Dunville Family who ran a brewery close by.  It was to be used by the workers of the nearby linen mills after their hard day's toil as a recoration area.

I lived not far from the Blackstaff on Springfield Road, I'm sure the staff there used it  I can't remember everything that far back as I was only a child but my recollection of Dunville Park is very like the picture  :)

This is the casualty in the R.V.H. when it opened in 1903.  It was in the Grosvenor Road just passed the old Black and White hall.  Electricty had come to Belfast in 1895 and the casualty had it.
