Church Street Coleraine,
South Side: 1987
[No. 7 on
|This photograph shows Moore's Corner in
1989. Note that at that time the upper floors of
Moore's shop in New Row had a Georgian appearance. This is
continued into Church Street on the second floor. However,
there are some Victorian influences in the first floor
windows. This corner contrasts with the Diamond end of this
block shown in the previous photographs. This is because the
Diamond end was substantially redeveloped after the
1850s/60s whereas this New Row end was already a substantial
building before this date - thus the more Georgian character
of this end. This entire block as far as the Diamond was
devastated by a van bomb explosion on the night of 13th November 1992.
The entire block was rebuilt and the architecture, whilst
essentially modern, contains elements of earlier times - the
most noteable being the bay window of 1903.
