THE GARFIELD BUILDING - LOWER GARFIELD STREET IN BELFAST

One thing that I have noticed over the last ten years is that there is a lot of derelict sites and buildings in Belfast.

As I have not visited Belfast since March 2019 I have no idea if the condition of the Garfield building has changed but hopefully I might be able to visit in 2021.

Despite the fact that I overheard a tourist guide claiming that the Garfield Bar Building was named after Garfield the comic character created by Jim Davis the reality is that the street dates from 1896 and was named after US president James Garfield who was assassinated in 1881.

Every time I am in Belfast I visited North Street and Garfield Street and in general I book a room in a nearby hotel. In 2018 I stayed at the Bullitt Hotel but normally I stay at the Ramada.

The Garfield Bar Building has been in decline since the about beginning of the century but the last tenant moved out as late as 2014. As each month passed the unusual listed building, which gently curves along the line of the street, fell deeper into decay with vegetation sprouting from the rooftops. What interested me was that the street often hosted interesting street art and graffiti but those days are now gone because the area is now being redeveloped as are many other parts of the city.

I USE THIS AND IT IS ALREADY FULL

One of the biggest ongoing problems that I have is storage and the problems gets worse by the year. 4 Years ago I purchased two LaCie 8TB thunder bolt drives and eighteen months later I purchased a 12TB drive and then in August of 2019 I needed a 20TB unit and it is already full. I do have an aggressive backup policy which does require a lot of storage so i suppose that I should not be surprised. I should mention that I use Amazon Photos and currently am using 12TB of online storage.


I REALLY DO NEED A SOLUTION
