J3474 : The Queen's Bridge, Belfast showed the southern side of the bridge. This is the northern side. Lanyonís original bridge (1840/43) comprised the stone arches. Bretlandís widening of 1885/86 added the cantilevered overlay supported by intricately adorned columns. With apologies to any of his descendants who might read this, he ruined the appearance of a classic Victorian urban bridge. On the other hand itís still in use 123 years later so his engineering skills are not in doubt.
