The end of the East Park water slide where metal and steel and screams succumb to drenched laughter and calls from excited children to do it again.

Rosedown and Thompson

The origins of Rose, Downs and Thompsons date back to 1777 when John Todd established the foundry in Hull. Products at that time included cannons and parts for windmills which were the company’s first introduction into the world of oilseed crushing. As the Port of Hull grew it also became one of the world’s largest centres for the crushing of oil bearing seeds and Rose Downs and Thompson Ltd. became a major supplier to this industry. By 1820 the company had installed its first hydraulic press for expelling oil from Linseed. In 1833 Mrs. Christiana Rose inherited ownership of the company. She employed Mr. James Downs, who was to become a partner in the company and in 1874 her grandson Mr. Campbell Thompson also became a partner and the company name became Rose, Downs and Thompson. The company was to trade under this name for over 100 years and became renowned throughout the world as a leading supplier of oil processing equipment.

The Hull Royal Infirmary

They made it blue

My mum died in here, I can’t remember which floor but it was up there somewhere, two strokes took her in the space of a month. I used to look out of the windows at night at the cars and the lights and think that Hull was fantastic. I don’t know how they were allowed to make it blue, it looks shit.

Rank Hovis

Abandoned

The “Clarence Flour Mills were built for Rank Ltd in 1952 around the grain silo of an older flour mill, much of which was destroyed by bombing in World War II. Rank became ‘Rank Hovis McDougall’ in 1962. The original mill was built for Joseph Rank by city architect and fellow methodist Alfred Gelder in 1891. The part of the building with the round windows and lighter brickwork is what remains of the older silo. Joseph’s son Joseph Arthur grew up to become a world-renowned film producer and distributor and founder of the Rank Organisation.” – Paul Glazzard

In the rain

In the old town through an old arch the curved Georgian homes, pave-stones, and cobbles of Prince Street glisten on a wet day.
