This film, which has been dated to roughly 1898 but whose makers remain unidentified, consists of a number of views of Belfast, initially looking down the street to the Albert Memorial Clock Tower, showing a horse-drawn tram and wagon alongside pedestrians. Then it's on to Queen's Bridge, followed by a gentle pan which takes in the dockyards to reveal a ship being unloaded.
