A selected visual history of St Andrew’s Dock
Twenty years ago St. Andrew’s Dock was the beating heart of Hull’s fishing community, an industry which defined the city and still echoes through it today. Now the dock stands derelict, a marshy wasteland overseen by the monolithic husk of the Lordline building, dominating the approach to the city.
Over the years and decades photographers have documented the dock from its thriving heyday to the present day. The small selection here shows a snapshot of St. Andrew’s over the best part of a century.
The exhibition contains work from several photographers, including Will Slater, who was responsible for sourcing all of the work displayed. The exhibition also contains archival photos of the dock whilst it was still a working part of the fishing industry.
