The Queen's Bridge, Belfast (detail)
The Queen's Bridge, Belfast (detail)
The Queen’s Bridge, designed by Lanyon, replaced the old Long Bridge in 1843. It was widened in 1885/86 with Bretland as the engineer. The lamp posts on the bridge are all similar to this specimen. After many years of pollution fish have re-appeared and seals can be seen on the seaward side of the weir. See also J3474 : Ironfounders' plate, Belfast.
Lampposts, Queen's Bridge, Belfast


The ornate “fish” lampposts, on the Queen’s Bridge, Belfast were cast by the Sun Foundry, Glasgow - probably in 1885 or 1886. Still in use but no longer providing the main lighting.
