Hi Sinner Girl. I love these walks whether in Ireland or London. It's just so lovely to walk the streets Rory did and the places he visited. One feels so connected to him. To think that in London most of the original buildings are still left that Rory walked past!!! I remember standing outside the place where the Marquee Club was and thinking he played and came here so many times. I just love this topic so much as well. Subrata. x

Wow this is fantastic, thanks a million for putting this together and posting all these great images. I love Then-and-Now ANYthing (except maybe my face). I Wonder if Rory's spirit still walks these pathways.

Regards and thanks again,
Richard

very cool.
I enjoy seeing the then and now shots.
I'd love to see the Northern Ireland comparison.
I'd bet most is "tore down" and replaced. It was a very sad area it appeared. The Mission and the one street it was named in the movie too. probably, hopefully new now.
The capital buildings are probably there though.
Ulster Hall I think I read is restored now.
Thanks for the tour Jim.

Dock Street, Belfast (the derelict area in IT 74) has been completely rejuvenated and is the industrial heartland of the city, including the commencement of reconstruction of the new Titanic quarter on the site of the old dockyard where the Titanic cruise liner was originally built. The mill chimney (Thompsons Mill), which can be seen against the backdrop of Cave Hill, still stands as does the domed City Hall. Cave Hill, incidentally, is where Jonathan Swift based 'Gulliver's Travels' and, viewed from a distance, is reminiscent of a man in profile lying down! Belfast has been the focus of an extensive rebuilding programme and attracts many visitors. Ulster Hall too was recently renovated. Parts of York Street (complete with the 'foot clinic' ) were also demolished. Google maps (Street View) provide photographs of the above-mentioned areas.
