Download upload failures

Grrrr, Apologies but I am currently unable to upload any ‘digital-files’ for people to purchase (download). Exaggeratingly I must have had 50 attempts today at uploading the files, but each time, just when I think excitedly to myself “Yes this is the one” I get yet another stupid WordPress failure error message. Pffft is all I can say, well pffft and grrrr to be exact..

The Doorway to Number 12

I’ve always been fascinated by the façade to this decrepit building, the murky curtains, the thin wonky doorway and its up-the-steps-door. And the gentle slope, I’ve always liked the gentle slope.

Opened in 1883 St. Andrew’s Dock was originally to be used for coal handling but was used entirely for Hull’s fishing industry. The dock closed in 1975 and has laid derelict ever since, plans for it’s redevelopment rise and fall as fire and time slowly engulf it’s broken remains.

Casting the fabulous shadow is the also derelict Lord Line building.

Kingston House

Kingston House office complex

Under nets and ready for demolition

A view from Davis Street, I always like the way this building is framed from this small derelict street. Kingston House is currently draped in netting because it is due to be sold and demolished at some point, no doubt to be replaced by something equally as fabulous. Alas the design of new buildings in Hull always leave something to be desired (I’m convinced jobs always go to interns who have never visited the city), though I have to say I quite like the brutality of this 13 storey soon to be ex-office block complex thing, it just needs to be bigger. The Hull Daily Mail recently called it an eyesore.

* Designed by modernist London-based architects Fry Drew and Partners, the high-rise Kingston House office complex opened in 1967. At the time it was meant to be the first part of an even bigger development straddling Hull’s Bond Street. Original plans for the area show a pedestrian footbridge across Bond Street providing a link to a new shopping centre, a seven-storey hotel, a conference centre and a multi- storey car park.

Sleeping

Parked-up safely for later use, a shopping trolley rests its weary wheels. The fire exit has not been kept clear. There may be trouble ahead.

Orchard Park Flats

‘Highcourt’ flats on the Orchard Park Estate in Hull are due for demolition in Autumn of 2014, councillor Terry Geraghty said: “We only have four tenants in the block at the moment. They should be rehomed by Easter and we’re hopeful the block will be brought down later in the year – around September or October time.” I like the colours in this finished piece, quite French I think.
