THE ALBERT BRIDGE IN BELFAST - PHOTOGRAPH 2012

THE ALBERT BRIDGE - PHOTOGRAPHED 2017

I remember overhearing an American tourist complaining that she could not understand why every place was named after a person and since then I often wondered what her reaction would be if she visited Belfast where many places and structures are named after members of the British Monarchy living and deceased.

Anyway this attractive bridge is The Albert Bridge and it connects East Bridge Street to Albertbridge Road [a road named after a bridge named in honour of a prince]. All of the cast iron including the decorative lampposts [which I like] were made in Derby by Andrew Handyside & Co.

Three flat arches span the River Lagan and it is one of eight bridges in the city. It was completed in 1890 by Belfast city surveyor J C Bretland after two arches of the previous bridge suddenly collapsed in 1886. It is located close to the city centre between East Bridge Street and the Albert Bridge Road.
