Dictionary of Irish Architects 1720 - 1940

Architect, of London, for whom see Directory of British Architects 1834-1914 (RIBA 2001) II, 657.  William James Smith is probably the 'W.G. Smith' who submitted an Italianate design in the competition for the Ulster Bank, Waring Street, Belfast in 1857.   A reviewer, writing in the Civil Engineer and Architect's Journal, felt that his design was 'in itself good looking' but had 'too much of the domestic character for its purpose'.(1)
