Images on this site are arranged into rough areas by location as in my book 'Still Occupied', available on Blurb. Eventually this site will contain all the images in that book and more.
Taken in April 1981, a few months before the ferry service ended on 24th June 1981 with the opening of the Humber Bridge. The ferry - the diesel paddle steamer Farringford - is about to dock at the floating pontoon which had a roadway leading up to the pier (also known as Hull Corporation Pier.) The 1930s pontoon was removed after the ferry closed, but the pier is still there, rather tidied up now.
