River Hull Archive #1 1830-1900

Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories

We have acquired a remarkable collection of photographs of the River Hull from Angus Young of the Hull Daily Mail who has contributed the newspaper’s archive of River Hull photos to Open Bridges. The pictures range from the 19th century to the 1980s.

We’re preparing to publish a weekly selection of photographs, starting with the earliest ones, 1830 to 1900.  Click on an image to see the full picture and scroll along.

If you have anything that you’d like to share about the photographs please click here to get in touch.

All photographs used with permission. We’ve digitised and processed the original photographs, restoring them where possible.

Visit the River Full Of Stories memory page here for more stories, films and photographs.

Open Bridges made history when for the first time all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull in the UK’s City of Culture 2017 raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on 22nd September 2017.  Historic vessels sailed down the River to be met by 21st century tugs.

Open Bridges is an independent Hull/East Yorkshire based project.
