Samson and Goliath (Harland & Wolff’s Cranes)
Samson and Goliath and built in 1969 and 1974, respectively, these cranes have become key landmarks and are startlingly visible on the Belfast skyline. Contrary to popular belief, these two cranes did not help build the RMS Titanic, which had its voyage over 50 years earlier in 1912. Nonetheless, their owners, Harland & Wolff, did construct the famous ship along with its counterpart RMS Olympic in 1911. Today, the Harland & Wolff docks are a reminder of Belfast’s rich marine history, and a beautiful site to spot in the city’s Titanic Quarter.
