North Street got its name because it followed on from the north gate of the town's walls from the 1600's. Before it was called North Street, it was named Goose Lane as the town's geese flocked together and were led down the street on a daily basis into the grazing fields outside the towns gates.

During this time, North Street was home to cities most stylish merchants. From dress makers to hat fitters and all the latest fashions. North Street truly was Belfast’s home of Style.
Peppered across Tribeca Belfast, the spirit of the Art Deco movement still lives on. Since 1925 onwards, the style influenced glamour and luxury within Belfast. This is not only evident in Belfast's architecture, but also in photographic records showing individuals dressing in the finest clothes, and furnishing homes with stylish 1920's interior fittings.
