I have included this shot of the “Lancing” (ex Kelly’s “Ballykern” J3474 : The "Ballykern" at Belfast) to show that, although work had started on the weir and bridges J3474 : Weir and cross-harbour bridges, Belfast (35), the northern end of Queen’s Quay was still in commercial use for the import of coal.
