The view upstream from the Queen’s Bridge. The (now demolished) power station at East Bridge Street J3473 : Old gate pillars and wall, Belfast is at the middle top. Oxford Street bus station J3474 : Former Oxford Street bus station, Belfast is at top right. Well before the building of the weir J3474 : The Lagan Weir, Belfast and J3474 : Weir and cross-harbour bridges, Belfast (65) the Lagan was fully tidal here with inter-tidal mud on view. Despite its unsavoury reputation the mud provided food for gulls, oystercatchers and redshank. J3474 : The River Lagan, Belfast (2012) shows the same view in 2012.
