                Suzi, on the Whites Row Car Park picture, just what is the hooded kid doing to the lampost?

                Looks like he is nutting it!

                  In the same shot you can make out your reflection in the doorway next to the big "40", then in the other window there is a white van with a guy watching you!!!!

                            It's pretty depressing really, and such a shame to be losing a part of the heritage of the area.

                            In Hull anything with historical value is destroyed immediatly to make way for "Iconic" structures like over priced flats and shopping centres no one shops in!

                              Polly Nathan's Fried Fish Shop

                              Here is an old postcard of Petticoat Lane and Nathan's Fish
                              Shop. I couldn't get the whole picture in because I couldn't get it small enough. I can't tell if this is a drawing, a photo, or a little of both. This is a different angle from a lot of the pictures I've seen, which is the reason I bought this card.

                                Looks like a painting but wasn't it common for paintings to be touched up?

                                My son reckons he can see a "Turtle" he is 4 and has been watching the animated version of the movie earlier.

                                I am now in the mood for some Fish N Chips!
