Boxing Day, Donegall Place, Belfast (2013)
Shopping patterns and hours have changed over the last 25 years. Boxing Day was (traditionally) a continuation of Christmas Day when all shops remained firmly closed. The city centre was very busy today at 11.05 when this photograph was taken. The shops were staffed but didn’t open until later. There was a limited bus service but no trains. Way back, circa 1955, I remember coming up to Belfast by train, from Banbridge, on Boxing Day but that was the GNR(B) and not NIR/Translink. Continue to J3374 : Boxing Day, Belfast (2014).
