Looking down King Edward Street towards Monument Bridge shows the Hull Dock Offices, the Wilberforce Monument at it's original site and depicts a city centre scene circa 1910.The Monument is the statue of William Wilberforce, the former Hull MP and anti-slavery campaigner. The monument was built in 1834 and is 102 feet high. It was originally located between Beverley Gate and the Ferens Art Gallery, near the Dock Offices (the grounds that King Charles I stood when he was denied access into the town). The Wilberforce Monument was moved to its present location at the very end of Queens Gardens (formerly Queen’s Dock) in 1935 because it was seen as a traffic hazard.
The print is signed by Adrian Thompson. The picture is supplied cellophane wrapped, presented in a generously sized mount.
