Belfast!

"The Thing with the Ring"?

Brian preached right here as a missionary :)

Love this building! It is the Belfast City Hall.
Apparently on her first visit, Queen Victoria was supposed to proclaim Belfast a city. Unfortunately he hated it so much she left within a few hours. Luckily she did return, demand new buildings be constructed, and finally gave it city status. Now half the city is named after her.
The ceiling as you enter city hall.
I think this is where she announced Belfast was an official city.
I think this represents Irish hard times, the next Irish better times. 
Can you spot the thing with the ring? The Titanic (it was constructed here)? The tree of life?
