See J3374 : Callender Street, Belfast (February 2008). A similar view in the same direction. The main change is the rebuilding of nos 4-6 J3374 : Nos 4-6 Callender Street, Belfast (August 2017) (left).
The street dates from the very early part of the 20th century. The footbridge connects Marks & Spencer J3374 : Former Water Office, Belfast and J3374 : View from the Belfast Wheel [4] to a delivery and collection bay.
The 1918 street directory shows that the bay was then the back entrance (numbered 17-21) to Richardson’s warehouse (now part of Marks & Spencer).
The building with the “Subway” sign (left) is Lindsay House, an office building on the site of Lindsay’s textile warehouse – see also J3374 : Former Lindsay's warehouse, Belfast (1) (Donegall Place).
Marks and Spencer

Marks and Spencer (M&S) was founded in Leeds in 1894 by Michael Marks and Thomas Spencer.

Marks, a polish immigrant began 'Marks Penny Bazaar' in Hartlepool and in 1884 moved to Leeds where he set up a market stall. Thomas Spencer joined him in 1894 when they set up 'Marks and Spencer'.

M&S are primarily known for selling clothing and food, where for many years they sold both under their own labels. There are still the largest clothing retailer in the UK.

In 2009 M&S had over 600 stores in the UK and 285 internationally.
