Quick stop by to read and snap a few pics. Certainly draws a lot of attention. The coffee shop near it is amazing....Cafe Neros.

Sculpture of two women situated outside the Victoria Street entrance to the Railway/Train station. I have seen some tourists taking photos beside this, and when you stand to look at them, they are impressive...most times we rush by and don't even notice them.

As past of the industrial revolution belfast was instrumental at putting women and children to work in factories. This made woman independent from men and brought progress to western civilisation

This has been around for so long it's easy to overlook it if you pass it regularly. Excellent piece of sculpture. Was somewhat controversial when it first appeared all those years. Perhaps we live in more enlightened times. Very popular with tourists for photo opportunities.

This sculpture was by Louise Walsh in 1992 and has become something of a landmark. There is a school.of thought that the ladies were originally meant to portray the 'working girls' who used to hang around Amelia Street. The other thinking is that it's quite simply a portrayal of local mill workers. Whatever the original idea was, the sculpture really... More

Nothing wrong about the breaking up for the monotony and boredom of a city with such splendid pieces. Belfast needs more of such street art.

This time around the ladies had gained a lick of face paint, as well as the affectionate additions of bracelets and anklets from yarn-bombers. I rate this as Belfast's greatest artwork, by long margin. Just read some of the text that stands out from the two statues - "She's Engaged! She's lovely - she uses Ponds!" Hilarious, and dreadful. This... More

This "monument" lacks proper context and seems out of place in its current location. I, personally, fail to see the point to this and it seems sad that so many people pass by this "monument" with little or no information as to its purpose, importance and significance, to say little of the expense involved in designing, building and positioning of...
