Overview

The story of Transport House began in the 1930s when Earnest Bevan selected the site as a new headquarters for the Transport Union in Ireland. Transport House, now a listed building, stands at the bottom of High Street opposite the Albert Clock. A unique structure, you either love it or hate it, but it always arouses interest and comment. The mural depicting the industries that traditionally made Belfast great, shipbuilding, engineering and aircraft manufacture, is in the style of socialist realism reminiscent of post-war Soviet art. This stands in contrast with the Empire-inspired Victorian and Georgian architecture that dominates the rest of the Belfast skyline.
