I  remember this export sale quite well as I was somewhat involved with it. From memory we sold to a very large company of Farm supplies in the American mid- west. It was Belfast Ropeworks world famous `Blue Bell` Baler twine for use on farms. We faced stiff competition from an American company called `International Harvesters` in New Orleans, but we got the contract. 1,440 tons was quite an export, back in the day. It was followed by many more exports to the USA.  :)

 Keeping good thanks buddy , hope you and yours are too .

The general topographical layout hasnít really changed that much from your photo , the building on the right behind the guy with the bowler hat is now a carpet shop and the photo explains the now strange very thick wall at the left side of the building . I thought perhaps bomb damage from the blitz but now see itís part of whatís left of the arches , if you google street view youíll see what I mean  :)
