Former Robinson & Cleaver building, Belfast (1)
Robinson & Cleaver (usually “Cleaver's”) was, by far, Belfast’s most exclusive department store. The staircase was one of its notable features. Another victim of the changing shopping pattern caused by the bombing campaign, it eventually closed. It was converted to offices with the ground floor let as shops. Unfortunately they never matched the dignity of the original – one was used to sell clothing by auction. Another is now a burger bar. This is the clock (still accurate).

It was completed in 1888, by H&J Martin, to a design by Young and Mackenzie. The external features include turrets, clocks and embellishment in the form heads and busts. Internally the staircase was one of its notable features. Another victim of the changing shopping pattern caused by the bombing campaign, it eventually closed later being converted to offices with the ground floor let as shops.
