See J3474 : Transport House, Belfast (detail). A general view of the building, at the corner of High Street and Victoria Street, opposite the Albert Clock. Symbolic of many things but, architecturally, very much a symbol of the fifties with its straight lines, large windows and a style which could have been found (almost) in any post-WWII city. The architect was JJ Brennan. Now vacant. Continue to J3474 : Transport House, Belfast (2).
Transport House, Belfast

An office building, at the corner of High Street and Victoria Street, completed in 1959 to a design by JJ Brennan for the Transport and General Workers Union. A good example of the style of the time (with a comradely feel) but now vacant and boarded up. The decorative tiles recall the days when Belfast had a solid base of manufacturing industry. Not on the official “at risk” register but on mine.
