Harland & Wolff Cranes, Belfast, Northern Ireland

Harland and Wolff was formed in 1861 by Edward James Harland and Gustav Wilhelm Wolff. Ironically, Harland never got to see the most famous ship ever to be built in his shipyard - The Titanic. Dominating the shipyard, and in fact the Belfast skyline, are the famous twin cranes Samson and Goliath. Goliath was built in 1969 and stands 96m tall; Samson was built in 1974 and stands 106m tall. Each crane spans 140m and can lift 840 tonnes. The dry dock at the foot of the cranes remains the largest in the world. Whilst much of the land around the cranes is now being redeveloped, the cranes will remain as a monument to Belfast's ship-building past.
