The young woman in the fancy gown was in a bit of a hurry; the graduation ceremony for Hull University was about to begin. Various notables got honorary degrees including Omar (Dr Zhivargo) Sharif, who claimed to have a strange attraction to Hull. The building in the background is the Ferens Art Gallery .
The Graduation ceremony was held in the City Hall, below, that's the Lord Mayor's limo parked outside the front door.
Good luck to the Class of 2010, with 70 graduates for every job they're going to need it.
