Fortwilliam gates, Belfast

Fortwilliam Park, running from the Shore Road was laid out circa 1870 as a select residential thoroughfare in north Belfast. Its residents included, over the years, a Major-General MacPherson, Robert Porter, director York Street Flax Spinning and Weaving Co Limited, William Barbour of Combe Barbour & Combe Ltd - the Falls Foundry, JF Hill managing director of Wm. Ewart & Sons Ltd, Lloyd Campbell of Henry Campbell & Co. Ltd the Mossley Mills and John (son of Sir Charles) Lanyon.
