I enjoy old buildings and imagining the history they have been involved in. Despite thirty five years of bombing and destruction, Belfast still has very many beautiful buildings. My particular favourites are those with intricate sculpted work carried out by artisans with skills sadly no longer

available in the 21st century. The example pictured is on the doorway of the Spires Shopping Centre, once the headquarters of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. Built in 1905, this building was also once a church. Worth a visit, if only to admire the work of the long dead masons!
