19th Century book about Belfast republished

Post by Christopher » 08 Dec 2008, 19:46

George Benn's important ÔÇÿHistory of the town of BelfastÔÇÖ (1823; 1877; 1880) has been republished by Blackstaff Press. Marcus Ward & Company, Belfast, published this work in the late nineteenth century. It covers topics such as local topography; the history of Presbyterianism; tenant rights; trade and industry; education; and notable individuals and families, BennÔÇÖs lively, accessible and sometimes quirky approach makes this an essential book for anyone who is interested in the history of Belfast, from earliest settlement to the development of the modern city.
