Past and present

Or more properly present and past. Above we have the entrance to Princes Quay shopping mall viewed across the Hull hole. Below how it used to be many years back, well before I came to Hull and before pedestrianisation. Yep, that's a ship parked up against a shop.

I don't know who took this photograph, I 'borrowed' it from a Facebook group and where it came from before then is anyone's guess. Isn't sharing awesome?

  1. Interesting, thanks - I'd not seen that old photo before.

    I think it's amusing that that section of road is still called "Monument Bridge", even though it no longer has the monument (the Wilbeforce statue) and is no longer a bridge.
