River Hull Archive #3 1945-1949

Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories

Welcome to the third of our weekly selection of photographs from the HDM archive, after WW2, 1945-1949.  There is an incredible aerial shot from Paul’s Mill, looking south towards North Bridge down Wilmolmlee, and some evocative barge photos, one of a River crossing following the pontoon bridge being washed away at Beverley. 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.

Thanks again to Angus Young.  All photographs used with permission. We’ve digitised and processed the original photographs, restoring them where possible.

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.
