Hilderthorpe Road - how it used to look

For the last two years, Hilderthorpe Road has been filled with traffic cones, workmen and diversion signs - as a huge project to regenerate the area takes shape.

But do you remember what it used to look like before the work got underway, with the Royal British Legion building and a row of houses and shops which have been knocked down.

These buildings have been knocked down in recent years, as planners try to create a new gateway to the harbour and town centre. The parade used to be home to the Samaritans, a takeaway, furniture shops and the Hull Daily Mail office in previous years.
