monday mural - unite the union

This is the Unite the Union Transport House in Belfast,.  Photos were taking in Oct 2015.  The info below I found on Wikipedia.

Unite the Union, commonly known as Unite, is a British and Irish trade union, formed on 1 May 2007, by the merger of Amicus and the Transport and General Workers' Union. It is the largest trade union in the UK and Ireland.




 I searched for some info on this sculpture but couldn't find any.  It's quite interesting though, I like it!

  2. It's very powerfully done - almost an army like workforce and I like the historical images.
    THat is a very nice sculpture in front of the building and I've never noticed it before.

  4. Nice mural but the artist had a difficult form to work with. Not a wide surface but all kinds off little not really connected surfaces. Still nice work.

  6. It appears that the mural shows the various trades involved in the union. I also like that sculpture. Hopefully, the union will stay strong. The Republicans and Trump are trying their best to destroy what's left of our unions.

  10. It's good to see women on the mural. That's not a given everywhere, even today.
