Maritime Belfast Trust, the charity set up to preserve Belfast's maritime and industrial heritage, have opened their archives and put some of their unique Harland and Wolff artefacts on display in Titanic Belfast.

Many of the items relating to the shipyard have been donated by former employees and their families or collected through projects the charity has worked on such as the restoration of the H&W Drawing Offices or SS Nomadic.

At their peak, Harland & Wolff were one of Belfast's biggest employers and this fascinating exhibition celebrates the hard work and passion of the islandmen by examining the tools of their trade from across the shipyard. On display will be a selection of never-seen-before items, from draughtsman’s tools to tracing linen, an extra-large industrial sewing machine and a Thompson works theodolite.

The exhibition also includes artefacts from Belfast Harbour Commissioners who have kindly loaned items from their stores. Visitors will be able to learn more about how the men of Belfast built these world-class ships and how Belfast’s shipbuilding legacy was born.

The exhibition also includes some of the panelling from SS Nomadic which will be on display in its original condition, as well as spare portholes and some of the bamboo stretchers used to transport injured workers in the shipyard.
