South Belfast was at the end of a natural route along which people from the heart of Ulster passed in search of work in the city. Their homes were very different from the middle class housing on the Malone Road.

But everyone, rich and poor, could enjoy the amenities which nature had to offer in the public parks in which the area is particularly rich; the Lagan valley was on their doorstep. All aspects of the area and of everyday life are covered. The area's many sports teams form one chapter, and another is devoted to churches and religious life.

Work, transport and wartime Belfast are also featured. Several decades have brought changes: the nineteenth century terraces are now more likely to house businesses than families, and old landmarks have disappeared.

Constant change ensures that all residents of South Belfast will find this compilation informative and nostalgic.
