About the memorial: This is a composite report of two linked memorials. The first part is a very striking mural on the gable end of a house in Hogarth Street, showing scenes from the blitz. One little detail of note at the bottom is that a modern meter box has been painted to look like a Chest of drawers being recovered from a property. The Mural is pictured on the referenced video between 14 minutes 15 seconds and 16 minutes 45 seconds. Before the Blitz there were 78 houses on the street- in 1943 just 5 were recorded as being habitable. More recently a plaque (one of a series) has been added to the Mural by Belfast City Council- it says that 'up to 80' people died on the street-both CWGC and Civil Defence lists say 65. Adjacent to the mural, is a metal plaque, framed in a faux painted stone frame, to those lost in the Tiger's Bay area. This is featured in the referenced video at between 16 minutes 45 seconds and 17 minutes 10 seconds. (Hogarth Street was part of the wider Tiger's Bay area)
