ASDA, Hessle Road

25 Aug

If you look at old maps of Hessle Road you’ll find the area between it and the docks along the Humber crammed with housing, every inch taken up with dwellings for the families of fishermen, rail workers and so on. The 60’s and 70’s saw much of this quasi-slum demolished and people shipped out to the sunlit uplands of Bransholme and Orchard Park. This left a large open space on the edge of town and as nature abhors a vacuum so in rushed a superstore, ASDA. It’s a large, bland and inhuman space (now owned by Walmart) but at least does have windows to reflect the mural I showed the other day.
Weekend Reflections are here.
