Gasworks

Gasworks

This is scanned from a slide taken in 1978 in a street off the lower Ormeau Road. The scene is entirely different today. The gasholders have been removed and the former gasworks is now being developed with office and residential accommodation, as part of the Laganside urban renewal programme. The terraced Victorian housing too has been removed and replaced with modern terraces of much higher quality.
