The pier and the ferries were still met by a tram service at this time. Not so visible here but Hull trams were the only system in Britain to use a centre groove rail set up. That is the flange on the wheels was in the middle of the wheel and not the side as all others were.

This "top deck" was a popular "Sunday promenading" venue for Hull folk.

In fact this is HSL 151, a Thornycroft 62ft High Speed Launch in use by the Royal Air Force.

This area was known as the "Oss Wash" in Hull parlance. Where the rully drivers would bring their horses to give them a swill down. An event, my father told me, which attracted great attention as many horses didn't want the often cold water bath and the drivers got more than their fair share.

It was a popular Hull fable that when the maker of this statue realised there were no stirrups, he committed suicide. Hardy likely as the king is portaged as a Roman Caesar and they didn't use such things.

This is the booking hall for the ferries. It still exists. It carries the lettering "Manchester, Sheffield and Lincoln railway company" which of course became the "Great Central" railway company and then the L.N.E.R.

It was true that the British Railway's doctor had an office on the first floor, I know because I have been to see a doctor there during my railway service.

Lettering seems to suggest the steamer belongs to the LNER - London & North Eastern Railway. There is a longer [ship's]name at the prow of the vessel

Before 1923 the Great Central Railway operated a ferry service between Kingston upon Hull and New Holland, on the south bank of the Humber estuary. Following the railway 'Grouping' this service was taken over by the LNER. Paddle steamers proved ideal for the work with their shallow draft in an estuary with shifting sandbanks. Later paddlesteamers to work the service were the PS Tattershall Castle, now preserved by London's Embankment, and the PS Lincoln Castle, which entered service in 1941 and was scrapped in 2010

Don't forget the P.S.Wingfield Castle which is these days, a floating museum at Hartlepool.
