Ravings From The Bog

Hidden Belfast – Glendinning Building, Murray Street

This fine example of Edwardian architecture has been protected from much of the strife that faced Belfast since 1910 (date of it’s construction) by its location at the far end of Murray Street. Murray Street is the shortish cul de sac that runs along the side of RBAI (Inst). The building was originally the offices of Glendinning, McLeish and Co. Ltd., which was a major player in Northern Ireland’s linen industry. Co-incidentally, the Glendinning in the title lived in Windsor Park in 1910, which is where my own parents live today.
