The street signs of Belfast

Note added 19 March 2012. Following representation made to this website I am now aware that publication of a photograph of a street name sign might be an offence under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. I was not aware of this when submitting. This note is to confirm that I have now stopped taking photographs of street name signs. If you object to any already submitted please click “Suggest an update to this image” and make your views known to a moderator.
The present Belfast City Council inherited a wide variety of street-name signs from the old Belfast Corporation. They included cast and tiled signs from the Victorian and Edwardian era, pressed white-on-black and even some which had been hand-painted. The more recent styles are, in the main, similar to those elsewhere in Northern Ireland although there are still ones of local interest – bilingual, incorporating housing association logos and decorative. One recent innovation has been the provision of modern signs in the style of the old tiled variety but incorporating the name of the “Quarter” used for tourist and marketing purposes.

Development site, Stranmillis, Belfast

A development site (Nos 1-3 Ridgeway Street and 130-134 Stranmillis Road), advertised for sale as a “Superb redevelopment opportunity . . . . . site area c. 3,875 sq ft (360 sq m)”. I understand that the site has planning permission (Z/2010/1433/F on 21 December 2011) for eight two-bed apartments and two car parking spaces.
The photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of geographical and historical record only. I have no connection with any of the parties involved in the development and cannot enter into correspondence.
