Scenes at Monument Bridge in Hull 1900

United Kingdom

This busy scene was taken on the end of Hull's Monument Bridge, a moveable 'bascule' bridge that connected the Queen's and Prince's docks. The Hull Daily Mail, applauding a screening of several Hull films, noted that "although they pass rapidly before the vision, it is an easy matter to distinguish acquaintances... it is amusing to hear the comments of those who know several of the 'pictures'."
