Kingston upon Hull is changing, the fabric of the city has been for many years as familiar sights gradually disappear. Many of the traditional businesses based along the River Hull have closed, shipbuilders and repairers now long gone as it seems is much of the river traffic, bridges that span the river seldom swing. All however is not lost as can be seen in these two pictures, the crane in the distance is helping construct a pedestrian bridge incorporating a restaurant and on the left one of Hull’s tallest constructions the recently opened Premier Inn.
