Thank you Boxer.
Dad worked there and I can still smell the new bread as he trundled out in his silent van to pick me up from where I was waiting at the corner of Ormeau Avenue before dawn in the school holidays.
Wonderful memories from 60 years ago.
Never get tired of seeing that photo.
Stop the ride, I want to get off and go back.

the gate was the entrance to the engine works. just inside the gate to the right was a very steep ramp to test these tanks the tanks were manufactured in the blacksmiths shop. i worked as a hammer boy in this shop when i was 15 in 1965. the ramp was still there and it was steep we could hardly climb it

Harland & Wolff, Belfast.   :)
Justice for the Massacred of La Mon and other atrocities.  The TRUTH will set them FREE.

Would it not be better to have a dedicated photo thread to H&W ?
It seems unfair that certain posters are bombarding us with H&W photographs over and over. Its as if their forcing H&W down our throats.
Especially unfair, given its (H&W) chequered past.
Please for fairness sake, if thats possible, start an exclusively H&W thread.
jjmac and welder etc, can post to their hearts content....Simple.

I sincerely apologise tours. It never occured to me that my recent postings of photo of H & W
would be anything but of interest to BF viewers.

I assure you I could not force anything on on anyone.  welder

tours sounds like an attempt at censorship. Most people enjoy ALL the photographs posted on here, you seem to be the exception.

Why are you apologising for welder the photos are great. We have photos on from all sides of life this is the first time I have seen a complaint.
