Final Photos of Great Victoria Street?

The present NI Railways Belfast Great Victoria Street station is a creation from the 1970s . Functional, but not pretty, this is a busy city centre station.

The new Belfast Grand Central Station is under construction nearby. Over the coming months this modern facility will replace the older station.

I made these views of Great Victoria Street during our visit to Belfast at the end of March.

Although it isn’t pretty, I thought it was wise to document the old station arrangement, including in the Durham Street overpass, before progress sweeps this into history. I doubt these images will win any contests but they may make some interesting comparison views for our next Belfast visit!
