    Abstract

    Poverty, unemployment, disease and premature death, are typically associated with the nineteenth-century urban condition in Great Britain and Ireland. Yet, in the midst of these widely-acknowledged difficulties, a more optimistic story can be discerned which casts these towns and cities in a very different light. This is the story of transport, communication and water; of construction, engineering and planning; of money, power and politics. In short, it is a story of networked urban infrastructure, a story that continues to evolve and develop. The present study will relate this story as it unfolded in the two towns of Belfast and Dublin between 1830 and 1922.
