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