Congregation Leaving St James' Church, Hessle Road, Hull (1902)
The faithful surge out of St James' Church onto a wind-swept street in Edwardian Hull.
Non-Fiction 1902 2 mins
The rapid growth of the Albert Dock made Hessle Road one of Hull's major thoroughfares. This well-dressed congregation - some of the women hold on to their hats against the wind - highlights the growing prosperity of the city's traders, while the young boys and girls glimpsed walking past the church in rags hint at the hardships and poverty of much of the area south of the Hessle Road.
St James' Church (built in 1831) was demolished in 1957.
