The Little Book of Belfast is a compendium of fascinating, obscure, strange and entertaining facts about the city of Belfast past and present.
Funny, fast-paced and fact-packed, here you will find out about Belfast's trade and industry, crime and punishment, music, literature and sport, architectural heritage, and its famous (and occasionally infamous) men and women. It covers not only the famous elements in Belfast's history but also unusual, little-known facts that could so easily have been forgotten.
A reliable reference book and a quirky guide, this can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about the people, the heritage and the secrets of this ancient city.
