Titanic artwork salutes shipyard heroes - NewsLetter

Titanic artwork salutes shipyard heroes - NewsLetter

MORE than 100 years ago, Titanic engineer Robert Knight was one of thousands of Belfast men who walked along the bustling Shankill Road every day – and now his face has been immortalised there in a new piece of artwork that captures the buzz of Belfast in 1912.

Yesterday, Robert’s granddaughter Elizabeth Knight Adair looked proudly at the depiction of the grandfather she never had the chance to know because he went down with Titanic along with the rest of the Harland and Wolff Guarantee Group and more than 1,500 others on April 15, 1912.

From the Crumlin Road, Robert was an engineer at the Belfast shipyard. He was hand-picked by the firm’s managing director, Thomas Andrews, to be part of the Guarantee Group – an elite band of craftsmen taken on board for the maiden voyage, who all died when the ship sank.

The new artwork was conceptualised by the Shankill Area Social History group (Sash) and created by artist Daniela Balmeverde. It consists of a series of pictures depicting scenes from 1912, including the building of Titanic, the men who built her as well as the signing of the Ulster Covenant.

The artwork is located on the Shankill Road, between Bellevue Street and Mountjoy Street.
