Woodbine Cottages

27 May

This little terrace of houses is on Endyke Lane in Cottingham. Endyke Lane (with a y) is not to be confused with Endike Lane (with an i) in Hull though the latter is an extension of the former. Looking at old maps it seems that the old name was Endike Lane and the Cottingham end only became Endyke after Hull built the North Hull Estate in the late 1920’s. I wonder if this was not some desire on Cottingham’s part to distinguish itself from the council house plebs down the road. So now you know the y of it…

Mobile Chippy

20 Mar

I haven’t seen many of these around though I can imagine they must be visiting fair grounds, football matches and so on all over the place. Now I come to think of it, I dimly recall being told that an aunt of mine ran a fish and chip van around the York area many, many years ago; we’re talking 1920’s or thereabouts. So nothing new under the sun.
This was parked outside what used to be the Endyke pub which became such an unexciting place that it had to change into a shop.
