Hull Road residents – nostalgic fun day photos!

THESE residents of Hull Road, Hedon are obviously having lots of fun! Jim Uney has sent these marvellous photos in – plus his whimsical comments –  as part of our Five Photo Sunday. Many, many thanks, Jim. Readers will find these nostalgic and delightful!

If anyone can help with the unknown names, or perhaps tell us what the events were, and when they took place – that would be fantastic!


An off the cuff tug of war event, considering some of the lads are not dressed to pull… but thinking again, maybe some of them are!

    • Hi, I shall look through my photos, my father lived in Hedon on Billy’s goat/ nanny goat island and I know I have a photo of my great great aunt stood outside one of the buildings with ducks and chickens running around.

  3. That’s my two brothers on the front row to the left Stephen and Clifford Ward and my mother Ivy Ward 4th from the left on the third row and not Ann Boyd

    • No it isn’t Anne boyd it’s my mother ivy ward and on the front row to the left are my two brothers Stephen and Clifford Ward.

  4. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. You’ve named all the people I remember, particularly Kathy Bogg as she’s my sister in law and now lives in Thorngumbald.
