Street Life

See rare historic photographs of the streets and buildings of North East Lincolnshire at the final exhibition of the Heritage Lottery-funded ‘Streets and their Stories’ project.

Some of the area’s best-loved landmarks will feature, including Grimsby’s Dock Tower, the Corporation Bridge and Cleethorpes Pier.

Also on display will be nostalgic views of the workplace, including Hewitt’s brewery, Peter Dixon’s papermill and Doig’s shipyard, as well images of theatres, cinemas, shops, and public houses.

Visitors will have the chance to revisit their childhood, with pictures of many of the region’s schools, including Carr Lane, Barcroft Street, Strand Street and Holme Hill.

As this is the grand finale of the three-year project, the exhibition will be larger than our previous events and will be staged in the splendid setting of the Town Hall’s Assembly Room. Our main aim has been to capture people’s memories of the area, so we’re looking forward to meeting anyone who has a story connected with North East Lincolnshire.
