River Hull 1993

Thanks to Ian Halstead for contributing his superb photograph to A River Full of Stories:

River Hull 1993

“Taken one Sunday morning in April or May 1993, a very calm and still day, and I remember the fantastic quality of the light that elevated anything it shone on. You still get a hint of how busy the river must have been in it’s heyday, but the small signs of decay and the start of economic irrelevance are there in the detail. Taken from somewhere near Bishop’s Lane Staith.” Ian Halstead for A River Full of Stories

A River Full of Stories book of memories and photographs of life on and around the River Hull is now available in all Hull & East Riding Libraries and can be ordered from all UK libraries.

The Exhibition and Films The free exhibition showcasing both the films made for Open Bridges and A River Full of Stories are on display at Hull Maritime Museum until the end of 2019. The museum is open Monday – Saturday, 10am – 4.30pm, and Sunday, 11am – 4pm.

Open Bridges made history when for the first, and only time, all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on the autumn equinox, 22nd September 2017.

Open Bridges is an independent not for profit Hull/East Yorkshire based project.
