Big Blue Beastie

25 Apr

It seems Dope Burger have got a bigger van and it’s hungry. Colourful though it may be it’s parked on a double yellow on Anlaby Road during the rush hour and that’s just wrong on so many levels.
I took this as well from the same place so why not post it …

The Orange Barrier Man

15 Jan

Someone has to have the job of taking away all those friendly barriers that have corralled and shepherded us these past months and here is that someone wearing suitable camouflage.

The simple way to get a parking ticket

28 Sep

It’s that time of year gain when prospective debt slaves otherwise known as students turn up for the start of yet another academic year. And for their entertainment there are a few places of nocturnal delight (so they say) and they advertise their wares just outside the University entrance. Now the observant among you may have noticed the small sign informing that parking is limited to two hours and no return within three. Well the top two pictures I took yesterday and it seems these vans just stay there all day for the first week of term. Now that’s just asking for trouble which duly arrived today in the form of a parking enforcement officer who probably couldn’t believe his luck. Neither could I as happened to be passing on the bus this afternoon.

Nothing special about today’s offering. A typical Hull side street, Grafton Street if you must know, with its typical array of terraced housing, typical array of bins on the pavement (they’re an obstruction but no-one gives a toss, which is also typical) and its typical white van parked on a double yellow (but really it’s on the pavement so that doesn’t count).
Today is a bank holiday and the forecast is cloudy with some rain … typical.

Barrow boys get van

15 Mar

The guy with his strawberries “Punnets, two for a pound” has got himself a richly decorated van.

Dope Burger

16 Jun

Parked up on Midland Street this decorated van belongs to a take away, or rather a fast food restaurant,  by the name of Dope Burger on Anlaby Road. Despite its name, or maybe because of it, the place has rave reviews …

One flew over the Crow’s Nest

8 Jun

Outside this Italian restaurant on Newland Avenue was parked the smallest delivery van I’ve ever seen. This place was a year or so ago called La Perla, new name, new decor and it’s getting good reviews. I’ve seen the menu and like all these places it’s far from cheap for what is essentially pasta with some sauce on top. Thirty years ago this was a greasy spoon of a place by the name of the Crow’s Nest (if I remember me rightly) it specialised in bacon butties and tea served in a pint mug! Autres temps, autres goûts!
