47 Queen Street

12 Feb

Here’s yet another of those old riverside warehouses reused as offices, this one is next door to that C4DI building I showed the other day. It’s also the offices of Wykeland the development company that is building the C4DI site so that’s handy.

The weekend in black and white is here.

76-78 Lowgate

8 Sep

Just round the corner from yesterday’s doorway and within spitting distance of the old Queen’s Dock this pair of buildings, now the Lowgate Centre, were built in the late 18th-century as merchants’ houses complete with stables and warehouses. The medieval practice of merchants living over the shop, as it were, died out pretty soon after this date which led to the spread of Hull north of the dock into Baker StreetAlbion Street and that area. 

Floreat GB

27 Mar
Humber Street, Hull
What does this GB stand for? Gor Blimey, Gordon Bennett, Geoffrey Boycott, gigabyte, George Bush, Great Britain, girl’s blouse, gallactic bloodshed, gorgeous brute … Well I don’t know. I do know that this is the former warehouse of GB Flowers on Humber Street. Along with the rest of the fruit, veg and flower market GB moved their show out to the west of town and as far as I know they are blooming nicely.
I had a feeling I’d posted about this place before (there’s only so much you can do before you start repeating yourself) and indeed here’s what it looked like in May 2013.
