The Elmwood Hall, Belfast

Built in 1859-62, to a design by John Corry, as Elmwood Presbyterian church. The builder was one Henry Martin who might have been the predecessor of H&J Martin. The tower was built a bit later – in 1872. The railings and gateposts date from 1873. Now the home of the Ulster Orchestra.
