Description

B&W exterior shots of former Ulster Bank Building on the corner of Shaftesbury Square and Dublin Road, Belfast. The branch occupied the ground floor, with offices above, from 1964 until closing on 14th June 2013. In 1964, the Ulster Bank created a bit of a stir with its commissioning of two untitled cast aluminium works by the renowned English sculptor Elisabeth Frink for the corner façade of its building which can also be seen in ths clip. The artworks were affectionately dubbed ‘Draft’ and ‘Overdraft’ and are also known as 'Flying Figures'.
