Kingston upon Hull has a long distinguished history. Famous since the sixteenth century for its whaling industry, renowned for its fishing port and docks as well as hosting the largest annual fair in England, it is also he home of William Wilberforce, the great reformer and Amy Johnson, the aviator. However the city has much else of interest and note, as the pages of this evocative volume reveal, including Garden Village, beautiful parks, dignified buildings, memorable events, local personalities and a host of other well-known sons and daughters in all walks of life. So much in the city has changed but it is not forgotten by Hullensians, whose resilient spirit and vibrant community have helped them to endure disaster and destruction. Despite tragedies such as the Dogger Bank incident and the R38 Airship explosion, both of which are documented in the book, the people of Hull rightly regard their recent past with nostalgia and affection. This fascinating collection of over 200 old photographs vividly recalls that way of life that has now vanished forever. It is a collection that will appeal to the nostalgia and affection felt by all Hullensians, regardless of age, for the city and community in which they take such pride.
