A view of Hull

The Old Town

85-10n-21: Island Wharf: Sheds west of Humber Dock Basin looking towards town centre, 1985 - Old Town

Previous      Next

By 1985 Hull marina was full of boats and you can see at the right of the picture some of the buildings in the city centre through a forest of masts.

The remaining warehouses of Railway Dock appear over the roof of a rather basic shed in the centre of the picture, part of which has collapsed and at left are the ends of a couple of lorries parked in this area to the west of Humber Dock Basin, which I think was part of Island Wharf.

This area is very different now, with the modern office blocks of Humber Quays, including the World Trade Centre Hull & Humber which opened in 2008 in the building completed in 2007.


Still Occupied

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.
