Floreat GB

Humber Street, Hull
What does this GB stand for? Gor Blimey, Gordon Bennett, Geoffrey Boycott, gigabyte, George Bush, Great Britain, girl's blouse, gallactic bloodshed, gorgeous brute ... Well I don't know. I do know that this is the former warehouse of GB Flowers on Humber Street. Along with the rest of the fruit, veg and flower market GB moved their show out to the west of town and as far as I know they are blooming nicely.
I had a feeling I'd posted about this place before (there's only so much you can do before you start repeating yourself) and indeed here's what it looked like in May 2013.

The weekend in black and white is here.

  3. I like this in black and white - suitably old, and showing its age.

  4. We sometimes see this same sign attached to the license plates of car meaning that the car spent some time in Great Britton - GB. Never seen this on a building, interesting.

  9. It is so sad to see those old letterings literally fall to pieces.
    Good that it lives on in this superb image!

    (I actually typed "litterally" - ha!)
