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.
Victoria Dock had been closed for a dozen years, but there were still scattered remains of its past, including odd piles of sand and gravel and a few boats which had been left stranded on the dockside, some in various states of scrapping, producing at times a rather surreal landscape.
The picture was taken in the eastern part of the dock estate, and was a part of the area that until 1932 was one of Hull's largest ship-building yards, Earle's Shipbuilding & Engineering Yard.
