Belfast, Northern Ireland's capital, dating from spot on 1900 up to the mid 1930's. The city has been hit hard by the Germans, IRA, retarded planners and most recently, the global recession (which has killed of any vibrant or ambitious plans) I've composed a few before and after shots:

Humm... hey Conor, how come Belfast's streets were so much busier one century ago? I guess the "new" pics were taken during the holidays, right?

Down to two reasons. Firstly, the pics were taken by the Google Streetview car very early in the morning. (Probably a Sunday morning around 5am in mid-summer) and secondly, the city has been crippled by a declining population over the past 40 years. In 1951 the population was 443,671, but today it is only 267,374. I'm not sure if you're aware of the Irish Troubles or the severe decline of Belfast industry (Eg, Belfast once had the worlds largest ship yard, however today, it has been reduced to basically empty wasteland) but they are the main contributors to such a low population.

There are many extensive projects in the city, currently working at constructing high density residential areas to bring back up the population.

These were the largest European cities in 1900 (population of the urban areas, i.e. city proper + suburbs). The figures come from the database of Professor Moriconi-Ebrad. From the 1st to the 26th largest European city in 1900, all the cities are listed here. After 26th, only some cities are listed (other are missing).

Population in 1900:

5- Vienna: 1,770,000
6- Birmingham: 1,360,000
7- Saint Petersburg: 1,347,000
8- Essen-Ruhr: 1,300,000
9- Moscow: 1,096,000
10- Leeds: 1,004,000
11- Hamburg: 983,000
12- Liverpool: 963,000
13- Istanbul: 900,000
14- Glasgow: 867,000
15- Budapest: 861,000
16- Warsaw: 711,000
17- Newcastle-upon-Tyne: 688,000

21- Madrid: 540,000
22- Prague: 535,000
23- Milan: 524,000
24- Amsterdam: 524,000
25- Munich: 519,000
26- Lyon: 508,000
Lille: 500,000

Also, Belfast City proper, alone, even without the suburbs in 1901 was 349180. Dublin City proper was over 200000 excluding suburbs.

The figures I gave are for urban areas, not provinces, so the figures for the Madrid and Barcelona provinces are irrelevant here.

As for the metropolitan areas, there were none back then. Metropolitan areas appeared with the emergence of the large-scale automobile commuting (in Spain that's not until the 1970s).

Spain probably hadn't official metropolitan areas but obviusly our metropolitan areas began before 70's.
