The rapid increase of Belfast in population, and its rapid
rise in commercial importance, chiefly accounts for the fact
that the construction of good streets and erection of its principal
public buildings dates from early in the last century.
Like all other large cities, not only in the United Kingdom,
but throughout the world, little, if any, attention whatever was
paid to sanitary matters until comparatively recent years,
streets were laid out to suit the convenience of
the owner of the ground, and lanes and alleys were
numerous in the immediate neighbourhood of the
widest and best streets of the City.
