City of Culture – Hull (Part 2)

And at the end of that alley, as some Hull readers will know, is the best pint of beer in Hull (and probably the cheapest, at least in a pub.) The pub was refurbished in the 1980s, which fortunately meant restoring it to something quite like it was at the start of the century. And there is no piped music and no TV. It’s been fortunate to escape all the web listings of pubs in Hull that I’ve seen, so I won’t name it here.


As one very small contribution to Hull’s 2017 UK City of Culture title (which I suspect will go largely unnoticed) I hope to publish a second edition of ‘Still Occupied’ (this time with a PDF version) and hopefully another book of my more recent images of the city, perhaps also including some of the colour work from the Ferens show. (I’m still considering the contents of these books, and rather than a second edition it may more closely represent the original show.)

How not to treat a fine mural.

A rather secret path called The Trans-Pennine Trail goes across the lock gates of Albert Dock
