Picture of the Month March 2018

Growing Up in Hull's Old Town, Mytongate Bridge

This painting is now on show in Ferens Art Gallery, Hull as part of the 2018 Open Exhibition.

I can remember having a lift home from Holy Trinity Youth Club with a boy called 'Satch'.His motorbike skidded and I nearly came off on Mytongate Bridge!The metal lanes were very slippery.

The warehouse on the left is now 'Ask' restaurant.The road straight ahead is Mytongate where Uncle Jack and Aunty Grace lived nearly opposite the old Telephone Exchange.He was fond of roses and his back garden had coal dust for soil!
