Kingston upon Hull is a fascinating city and over the last 150 years or so has witnessed great changes. The city centre in the late 1890s was made up of pre Victorian slum houses and tiny narrow streets. In the very last years of the 1890s much of the old city centre was completely demolished and many of the old parts of the city centre have been captured on photographs, some of which are included in this book. Today, the city centre is very modern and boasts three excellent shopping centres as well as the more traditional streets. It also has several museums and William Wilberforce's house, which was the home of the anti slavery campaigner. This excellent book with over 190 photographs shows not only the city centre as it was and how it is today but also some of its environs. It is essential reading for anyone who knows and loves the area.
