Sadly Sinclair’s Department Store closed in 1972, but the building still stands proud. Sinclair’s was once one of Belfast’s most prestigious department stores. The store on Royal Avenue as seen today was built in 1926 in the classical style. By 1935, Sinclair’s was extended with an Art Deco-style addition by Belfast-born architect James Scott, who had previously designed the 1926 building.
Since January I have taken a great many images of Belfast buildings, in so doing I have been trying to depict them with open space surrounding them to show their locational setting and perspective. Apart from the images taken at the very beginning all have been taken with a Nikon D700 fitted with a AF-S Nikkor 14-24mm 1:2.8G lens. Having taken well over 500 images with this lens since January I have come to value its qualities.
