East Park Gates

7 Nov

A further testament to the concrete pourer’s art is to be found adorning the entrance to East Park. They are so horrible that I could find nothing on the net to indicate who designed them, shame is a powerful motive for reticence. So here they stand to welcome the visitor; after this the actual park couldn’t be any worse.

    Maybe they are cast concrete pieces attached, cemented, to concrete blocks. I think black and white is the right treatment for this photo.

    Years ago, as a young boy, I would climb and sit atop the wall to the left to enjoy the £1 worth of sweets I'd buy from the shop at the other side of Holderness Road.They are indeed a hideous sight.

    You couldn’t find out who’d designed them! As with all your opinionated views throughout this site it’s another example of your ignorance and laziness.
    Took me less than a minute to research that they were designed by the City Architect; erected in 1964. Classic Brutalist design.
