Jean-Marc Verhast, Belgium6 years ago Comments: Yes, indeed al the remaining footprints of the shipbuilding at Belfast in particular the link with the great ships build beginning 1900 should be preserved as an all time rememberence of the hard conditions in which the workers in those days had to work and also of course as a tribute to the lost souls of the Titanic.
Pat Steen, United Kingdom7 years ago Comments: I visited this site in 2007 and was very depressed by the dilapidated condition of both the pumping house and the graving dock. My particular interest in this site is that they were named after my great great grandfather Robert Thompson who was a member of the Harbour Commissioners from 1893 and chairman from 1907 until his death in 1918. It was the great foresight of the Harbour Commissioners who in building the Thompson Dock gave Belfast a facility to permit the building of the Titanic and many other great ships and which remained in use for some 90 years.
