A plate, under one of the lamps J3474 : The Queen's Bridge, Belfast (detail) on the Queen’s Bridge. The lamps were cast in Glasgow but the bases seem to have been made locally. The founders were Gregg, Sons & Phenix who traded from 15 Church Lane J3474 : Church Lane, Belfast. The plate is well preserved and legible but is covered by several layers of paint. See also J2459 : Phenix grating cover, Hillsborough.
