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.

Catherine St is one of Hulls shorter streets, but Google halves its length to around 30 metres with no real buildings on it, naming it other half as part of Machell St, though the street signs still have it at original length. The corner site shown here is now a yard for LS Lighting & Signs. The building at extreme left on Scott St has also gone, though there is a similar building a few yards further on on the other side of Wincolmlee.
Spear Warehousing & Transport Company Limited owned a number of warehouse premises in Hull and the company was liquidated in the mid-1980s. I don't know the history of this building, but it looks fairly solid and a good example of commercial building of its era, with a rather impressive carriage entrance at the left, and it is a shame it has not survived.
