Harland and Wolff employees have gone back to work after the closure-threatened shipyard was sold. There were cheers as the remaining staff walked through the gates in Belfast at 9am. Workers launched a campaign after the shipyard was placed into administration over the summer.
Belfast Titanic Memorial Garden (Atlas Obscura)
In honor of the 22 local men who died in the Titanic disaster, the sculpture is 22 feet high (including the plinth), and features small water fountains, gargoyle-type creatures, and inscriptions on all sides. The local victims are listed by rank, starting with Thomas Andrews, the ship’s architect and the managing director of Harland and Wolff.
Since it is Friday, time to relax and kick back a little. And with Halloween approaching, perhaps a nod in that direction with Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Have a nice Friday everyone.
