Transport house is an office building, at the corner of High street and Victoria street, completed in 1959 and designed by JJ Brennan for the Transport and General Workers Union. A good example of the style of the time but now vacant and boarded up. The decorative tiles recall the days when Belfast had a solid base of manufacturing industry. A plane, cranes, a ship, and a factory are on the mural. Source : http://www.mimoa.eu/

An interesting house, very typical of the 1950's, the architecture as well as the mural. It contrasts a lot to the neighbours. You included the pink flowers very cleverly in the foreground. The light is very nice too.

nice view mixing the beautiful flowers and the lines of architecture and that mural. I liked the framing and the quality of this image. TFS.

Excellent DOF, good color and light management. The subject is a bit too "underfoot" (in the middle) for my taste.

This is a building I have passed by on many occasions and never really stopped to study the mural in its entirety. Many negotiations have taken place in this building that have affected the industrial workforce of Northern Ireland. You have taken this photograph from a really good angle and in good light showing contrast between the surrounding buildings. Looking through the pink flowers of the tree gives the shot an extra dimension. Thanks and have a good day.

Good idea to include more of the city surrounding on picture, as the main subject, the painted wall building, center the attention.
Wonderful modern mural in good mild colors.
Well positioned with the camera, under the pink flowers tree.
Fine clear photo, blue tones dominating.

So the detailed tiling is partof the building, and not an add on or temporary cover? Wow, quite cool as an addition to the building. A shame to see its empty now, but like so many others I guess. Great shot of a building that would probably go unnoticed by most, but here you have isolated it well to draw attention to its unique features
All the best
