See J3374 : Buoys, Donegall Street, Belfast. The buoys were in slightly better condition and were even used for paddling. The low buildings at middle left have been demolished for Writers Square. Generally speaking, Belfast was still a fairly grim place. The revival had still to come. Continue to J3374 : Buoys, Donegall Street, Belfast (3).
The Buoys, Titanic Quarter, Belfast

The buoys stood outside the Art College, (part of the University of Ulster), at the corner of Donegall Street and York Street. When erected in 1979 they were quite a novelty and included jets of water squirting from below. Time (and various elements of aerosol society) has not treated them well. The jets of water are no more. They were a gift from the Commissioners of Irish Lights.

Subsequently moved to the Titanic Quarter.
