Festival House

13 Oct

You know how it is: the neighbours have gotten a bit rowdy and done a bit of damage to your neighbourhood but, well, we’ve all got to get along together somehow … so some six years after that party that was WW2 Hull gets round to building something permanent; Hull is so chuffed at building something permanent it puts up a plaque and the building is named after that event that forever dooms Britain: the Festival of Britain. OK enough hype; this easily missed building is the first building they built after the war and Jameson Street must have been a much bigger mess than the recent renovations ( “You don’t know you’ve lived”, I believe is the expression our parents would fling at us for being born too late to miss all that bomb damage fun. So sorry Adolph I’ll catch it on Yesterday +1). May day 1951 must have been some day for Hull, the rebuild begins. There is that saying if at first you don’t succeed try again and fail again, fail better; Hull has been doing that for nigh on seventy years.

    The seal is an interesting sight.
