Morning at West Twin Wharf, Belfast
Morning at West Twin Wharf, Belfast
Early morning at West Twin Wharf in Belfast docks, the view dominated by the huge silos. The wharf was constructed in 1962-63 by Charles Brand & Son. The large concrete silo, named West Twin Silo, was constructed 1962-64 for W.R Barnett and R. & H. Hall, with an extension added 1970-73. The modern metal silos to the far right are more recent additions again.

Docked at the wharf is the 'Joker'; just drawing alongside is the tug 'Willowgarth' LinkExternal link heading out into Belfast Lough to assist with the arrival of the tanker 'Torm Sara' LinkExternal link into dry dock. See LinkExternal link for some other related images.
