32r24: Queen's Terrace and Tunis St, Sculcoates Lane, 1982
- Beverley Rd
Images on this site are arranged into rough areas by location as in my book 'Still Occupied', available on Blurb. Eventually this site will contain all the images in that book and more.
A woman walks down Queens's Terrace, off Sculcoates Lane. The 1948/9 Six Inch OS map shows a gap in the houses along the street here, as well as many other properties around also missing compared to pre-war maps, suggesting considerable bomb damage in the area. Kids growing up after the war in Hull had plenty of such informal playgrounds, often like this one with a wicket painted on the wall. I didn't ask the woman, who I think had walked out of the open door at left, if she was 'Angie', the name also on the wall. The run of buildings on the right had side of the street appear to have been demolished some time after the war.
Although most Hull terraces are 'blind', often with just a brick wall separating them from a terrace off the next street, Queens Terrace always had an alley or tenfoot through into Tunis St (and on further to Exchange St.) The two houses at the right in Tunis St are I think still there, though somewhat altered, with the small bathroom windows replaced by ventilators.
