Description

The "Two Cranes" T-shirt from Norn Iron Tees is a nod to Belfast's industrial icons, Samson and Goliath. These yellow gantry cranes, constructed by the German engineering firm Krupp, are not just engineering marvels but symbols of the city's storied shipbuilding past​. They were part of Harland and Wolff, the shipbuilding company renowned for constructing over 1,700 vessels, including the Titanic​.

Harland and Wolff, established in 1861 by Edward James Harland and Gustav Wilhelm Wolff, quickly became a leader in ship innovation and was the largest employer in Belfast City during the world wars​. Samson and Goliath, standing tall at 96 and 106 meters respectively, were pivotal in modernizing the shipbuilding industry with their enormous lifting capacities​. Although shipbuilding in Belfast has declined, these cranes have been preserved as historic monuments, symbolizing the city's rich industrial heritage​.
