The Buoys, Titanic Quarter, Belfast :: J3374

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.
