In late Victorian times it was the fastest growing city in the British Isles the largest city on the island of Ireland and the third city of in the British Empire.

In 1800 the population of the town of Belfast was 20000 and had grown in a frenetic manner to 330000 by 1900.The city's expansion was fuelled by industrialisation such as shipbuilding engineering rope works linen mills and whiskey distilling. Belfast City Through Time is an illustrated history that captures scenes of how Belfast has changed over the last 100 years or so. A journey around the city and its environs is contained within priceless old photographs and postcards of past times and then compared with modern images of how the location looks today.
