TRANSPORT HOUSE IS A ZOZIMUZ FAVOURITE
The last time I visited Belfast it distressed me to see the condition of this building.

This office building, at the corner of High Street and Victoria Street was completed in 1959 to a design by JJ Brennan for the Transport and General Workers Union.

The striking façade features a huge mural depicting giant marching men, an airplane and a ship - each representing Belfast's engineering heyday. The TGWU has vacated this listed building and no one appears to be maintaining it.

“Late 1950s socialist realism meets post-war Soviet art at the NI HQ of the Transport & General Workers Union (TGWU).”
