The way under the bridge - Coppermine - 19151.jpg
The way under the bridge

Some early evening summer sunshine bathes the A63 in a nice yellow/orange glow, as the North Tower for the Humber Bridge stands proud just around the corner - of which the A63 will snake its way underneath.

Rotterdam ferry terminus, Hull - Geograph - 320322.jpg
Rotterdam ferry terminus, Hull
Seen from the east, the gangway from the P&O Ferries 'Pride of Rotterdam' seems to lead directly into one of the storage containers to the west of King George Dock, at least some of which are owned by Tate & Lyle. It brings to mind the classic 1970s sci-fi film 'Soylent Green' in which people are processed as food, but that can't be true, can it? After all, human trafficking has been outlawed for two hundred years.

Beverley Road, Hull HU5 (C) David Hallam-Jones - Geograph - 3543481.jpg
Beverley Road, Hull HU5 (C) David Hallam-Jones
This railway carriage has been adapted into a pub - The Cannon Junction - on the side of Beverley Road (i.e. the A1079). This is the view towards the city centre. The bridge served The Hull Barnsley & West Riding Junction Railway and Dock Company (HB&WRJR&DCo.), a company that began in 1885. Its name was changed to The Hull and Barnsley Railway (H&BR) in 1905. The line terminated in Hull at three main points: Alexandra Dock; for import and export of goods by sea, Cannon Street station; a goods station and passenger terminus, and Neptune Street goods station; the main goods terminus. The line eventually became a victim of the Beeching national railway rationalisation programme in the 1960s.
