The wrong side of the tracks

Anlaby Road tower blocks seem to march off into the distance. 
These rail platforms are no longer used. They were specially built to take European emigrants from Hull to Liverpool whist separating them from the native population; they were kept out of sight. Many thousands passed through here in the search for a better life. I guess that, as they didn't stay in Hull, the chances are they found one. If they'd stayed their descendants might be living in these lovely "homes".
