Dockers' celebrate their history
Former dockers and their families collated their memorabilia to celebrate the centenary of the Irish Transport and General Workers Union.
The exhibition is part of the Shared Heritage Interpretive Project (SHIP).
SHIP launched in 2006 with aims to celebrate dockers' lives.
Former dockers have worked with SHIP to launch a series of events to tell the forgotten story of how the city's Dockers helped build Belfast.
At one stage there were two thousand working in Belfast's docks handling trade coming in and out of the Port as the city grew into a major industrial centre.
Today only 16 dockers remain.
