The 'Independent' at Belfast
90m cargo vessel 'Independent' discharging what is probably bulk cement at Stormont Wharf in Belfast docks. The cargo is being sucked from the hold by the machine on the quayside. The ship was built in 1982 and is flagged to Barbados.

Wharf at the Victoria Channel, Belfast docks. The wharf was constructed 1956-62 by Charles Brand & Son, to provide a total lineal quayage of 580 metres; this was further extended by an additional 250 metres which was completed in 2009. Stormont Wharf is now one of the longest deep water quays in Ireland.
