River Hull Archive #22 1985-1989

Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories

It’s time for the last of our weekly selection of photographs from the HDM archive, this time it’s photos from 1985-1989. Thanks again to Angus Young for the photos, all used with permission. We’ve digitised and processed the original photographs, restoring them where possible. We are delighted that the Open Bridges: A River Full of Stories film and exhibition is now at Hull Maritime Museum and you can visit it until the end of September. The films will be on continuous loop throughout the free exhibition, open Monday – Saturday, 10am – 4.30pm, and Sunday, 11am – 4pm. Keep an eye on the River blog posts for more stories and news.

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 not for profit Hull/East Yorkshire based project.
