Another view of one of the major sections of the 'peace line' that stretches between the Catholic and Protestant areas of west Belfast. The photograph was taken from the Protestant, Shankill Road, side of the wall. On the far (Catholic) side of the wall building land is in short supply and houses have been built tight against the wall. On the (Protestant) side from where the photograph was taken there is less pressure on land and houses have been built further away from the wall.
