Harland & Wolff Yellow Pulley

Other White Star Line Vessels, 1950, Tom Rudderham Collection

A large yellow pulley, used during shipyard construction in Belfast.

This sturdy pulley was used to lift and lower equipment during the construction of ships in a Belfast shipyard. It’s yellow colour matches that of the famous Harland & Wolff gantry’s, which have stood over the Belfast docks for more than a century. Clear signs of wear and tear.
