See J3374 : Donegall Place, Belfast (21). The “Streets Ahead” scheme is now complete. Donegall Place now has fancy paving and street lights, new trees, seats and Sunday strollers. This photograph was taken just before noon and brought back memories of Sundays during the mid-70’s when I was almost the only pedestrian in central Belfast, as I made my solitary way to York Road station J3475 : York Road station, Belfast. The “Streets Ahead” scheme started in early 2008 J3374 : Arthur Street, Belfast.
