Bland Buildings

Here, stitched together from several shots, is the inappropriately named Grand Buildings on Jameson Street. This block replaced a building that housed the Hull Daily Mail and a few other shops. That old building wasn't much to look at but it was a lot more attractive than this in my humble opinion (see a picture taken just before demolition here). Tomorrow I'll show some grand buildings that still remain on Jameson Street.


  1. I wonder what makes people think newer is better. I'm fortunate to live in a town that cherishes preservation, for the most part, but there have been some blunders. Perhaps some buildings are so far gone it's too expensive to save them, but it's "greener" to do so when possible.

  2. As a modern building, it doesn't look too bad. At least the architects have put some effort into it, rather than just designing a square concrete block

  3. The old building had a bit more style.
