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.

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.
