Anlaby Rd & Hessle Rd

Anlaby Rd - Former Immigrant Station 1871. By Thomas Prosser. For
the North Eastern Railway Co. Extended 1881.
The Eagle pub on Anlaby Rd was originally much smaller - and a little
to the east and there was a large garden
belonging to the pub up to the corner of Coltman St . This was built on
around 1860 and the 3 storey building
at the corner was a grocers shop. The pub was extended around 1960
to include the corner shop, and given back its
orginal name in 1999. It closed a few years ago and has been derelict
since, but is to be converted into flats.
Built as Milton Terrace on Anlaby Rd around 1870, there were 13 properties.
The 8 to the west were demolished for the 'flyover'
Al-Salam mosque, Hull's first mosque here in 1967, renovated and restored
Hull's School for Fishermen moved here around 1920, and shortly after
it became Boulevard Nautical School
Hull & Sculcoates Dispensary - Western Branch. Now Anson Electronics,
1898, Smith, Brodrick & Lowthe
Hessle Rd and Rayners - formerly the Star & Garter and historically
the Hull fisherman's pub.
Murals painted here on the wall of Turbo Systems in May 2017
and more or less opposite at Dixons Bakery a few months later
commemorating the fishermen
and the Hull women who fought to get safer working conditions on the
after the 1968 tragedies in which 58 men working on three trawlers
were drowned within a month on the
St Romanus , Kingston Peridot and Ross Cleveland.
Lillian Bilocca, Christine Jensen, Mary Denness and Yvonne Blenkinsop
formed the Hessle Road Women's Committee
better known as the headscarf revolutionaries. They went to meet Harold
Wilson with their demands and new
regulations were introduced, meeting most of them. They
were attacked, reviled and blacklisted at the time by
the fishing industry. Big Lil died in 1988 and it was only in 1990 that
Hull Council put up a plaque recognising
"the contributions to the fishing industry by the women of Hessle Road,
led by Lillian Bilocca, who successfully
campaigned for better safety measures following the loss of three Hull trawlers
