OLD WELSH METHODIST CHURCH ON TALBOT STREET

OLD WELSH METHODIST CHURCH ON TALBOT STREET


I took this photograph because I recently came across the following description of this building - "Although in a somewhat dilapidated condition, this flamboyantly-painted former Welsh Methodist church, was designed by the architect William Murray, whose father was a first cousin of the architect Francis Johnston. Over a period of fifteen years he had been involved in the erection of nine district lunatic asylums, all built, with only minor variations, to the formula originally devised with Francis Johnston for the asylum at Armagh. This building retains some of its original features and contributes to the architectural variety of the area as well as providing a record of the presence of the former dissenting church."
