Trade: old and new

This is the entrance to what is now Hull's Marina but what used to be a busy trading dock. During the nineteenth century hundreds of thousands of emigrants from Europe passed through this dock on their way to the train for Liverpool and the boats to America. The tide is out showing a gloriously muddy basin.
The glass construction is a World Trade Centre; a different sort of trading goes on in there.


  1. A very interesting post describing your city both then and now. Love the combination of a glaringly bright sun and a cloudy sky too.

    Welcome to the CDP community! Looking forward to learning more about your corner of the world, especially since I know absolutely nothing about it. :)

  2. Thank you Hilda for your kind welcome.
