A trolley bus circling the Queen Victoria statue. Is it only Hull that will put a statue of a revered monarch on top of its public toilets? Looks like this trolley is taking the inner circuit so it must be on either a 61, 62 or 63 service.

Bus or Trolley bus? This one has no white stripe across the front because it has a radiator, therefore, it's a bus!

Generating station primarily for the Hull tramway system but it did supply DC current as well to the surrounding area. The ground floor of this building and it's walls (up to about 6 ft.)still survive as an enclosed car park for Telephone House which will be be built at the rear on Carr Lane

William Wilberforce stands proud in the centre of his own traffic island but not for long. With building of the College of Technology, the road will be moved to allow him to stand in the forecourt.

The "Regent" cinema, it had "double" or "twin" seats, not that I was old enough to realise what they were for!
