|Main Creator:||Weatherall, N. photographer|
Belfast Gas Works: former Retort House, 1887 - 1888, architect Robert Watt.Nicknamed Klondyke House because of its remoteness from the centre of things, the Time Office. Orignally built for the making of gas, production ceased after a local linen manufacturer won a court injunction because emissions were affecting the manufacturing of his cloth. Gas was made here for a short time by a different process. Recently re-roofed for use as a training centre it has found a new location as a theatre, housing productions planned for the Grand Opera House,currently under-going restoration following bomb damage.
