Story Behind the Painting

This piece started as a painting called ‘Two Pints’ and later had the lettering added to embody ‘Belfast, No Mean City’.

The image is of an ordinary, working class man, relaxed with a cigarette and two pints of Guinness as he finishes a hard day’s work.

The working men’s clubs and bars around Harland & Wolff’s shipyard in East Belfast would be filled with men after their shift. Heavy coats and collarless shirts with a woollen waistcoat were their everyday clothes.

The phrase ‘No Mean City’ is a quotation from the bible where Paul, the apostle, says he is a citizen of ‘No Mean City’ (an obscure or insignificant city) in his case a Roman citizen. In Bradley’s painting he uses the phrase to give weight and significance to his hometown of Belfast, of which he is immensely proud.
