Visit to Hull’s history centre

We thought it would be in our best interest to visit the History Centre in order to seek out additional information which would help us in deciding the interior of the building or just to find photographs or text which may help us in the development for the overall project. We looked at both books and microfilm and came across several images and text which would be of use. The images I have collected are as follows;

These images show lowgate within 1988 which is very interesting as this was just before Ocean Chambers was created. The other images show the imports and exports of Hull trade within 1890’s. This information tells us that cotton, wood,iron and wool was popular during this period meaning that this was likely used within the buildings design and interior. We also found a statement at the History centre which clarified that lowgate had electrics in 1895. This information will be useful as we can use this to add electricity to the building as previously the interior was lit by candle and oil.
