The Palmhouse by Alan McMorris
Clear

The Palmhouse, Botanic Gardens, Belfast

“The most striking and interesting feature of Belfast Botanic Gardens is the Palm House, with its two wings flanking a bold elliptical dome. One cannot but applaud the determination of the men who directed the Garden in its early days and who, without outside financial help, built a curvilinear glass house before Kew or Glasnevin had one. And it was most likely a source of satisfaction to them that when Kew and Glasnevin put up their Palm Houses, they both chose the contractor who had built the wings of the Belfast house.”
