History of Hull streets on display

Information boards have appeared throughout the city centre, telling the historical stories of the streets.

Six boards have been installed across the city centre in areas included in the public realm project, and offer an insight into how some of the main city centre streets used to look and operate in years gone by.

Boards are stationed at Beverley Gate, Humber Street, Jameson Street, Paragon Square, Queen Victoria Square and Trinity Square.

Each board includes details of the history behind the streets, alongside historical images, interesting facts and a glimpse into the future with CGI imaging of the area.

Councillor Steven Bayes, Portfolio Holder for Visitor Destination said:

“The public realm project seems to have really sparked people’s interest in the city centre and importantly its rich history.

“The boards present an opportunity for members of the public to learn more about their city centre’s past as well as finding out more about the projects that it is hoped will help to make Hull a world-class visitor destination”.

Boards will remain in place throughout the remainder of the public realm programme, when it is hoped more permanent sites can be found for them.
