Terrace Houses

Posted by Bill (Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom) on 17 May 2018 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Another view of Tea Lane. This type of house was built to accommodate the influx of workers as Belfast rapidly expanded during the 19th century.

It was obviously felt that workers and their families didn't need much personal space. Nicely preserved and documented though

@grouser: You're absolutely right, especially as families tended to be bigger in 19th century.

A great view of these terrace houses, which have a rich history!! I am intrigued by the unique sash windows where the lower sash is smaller.

Well composed to show the symmetry. I like the blue door and shutters.
