—1906 —In the 17th century Belfast was little more than a village, but by the end of the 19th century it had become a dynamic industrial powerhouse, its mighty shipbuilding, linen, engineering and tobacco industries fueled by a rapidly growing population. In 1888 Queen Victoria conferred on Belfast the title of City. The existing town hall on Victoria Street was deemed too modest to reflect the city's new status and its citizens built this magnificent and exuberant City Hall as a measure of their civic pride.
