View in Ireland of Belfast and the River Lagan, engraved by Jukes in the early 19th century. The River Lagan has its source on Slieve Croob in County Down and makes its way through Belfast into the North Sea. By the early 19th century people lived and worked by the river and the city had become an important manufacturing centre, with cotton and linen being the central trades. This view has been drawn from what is now Ormeau Park.
