Humber Highway, 1956

Humber Highway

This documentary film by Betty and Cyril Ramsden chronicles the places, activities, and life around the Humber estuary of the mid-1950s, including Spurn Point, Paull, and the docks at Hull.

There are some lengthy titles that explain some of the important facts about the areas in which they filmed.

My thanks to Chris Brady for spotting this one.

  1. Very nostalgic, I think containerisation has lost a lot of the magic of shipping. When I was small a favourite school hols trip was 186 bus to Woolwich, cross on free ferry walk down cinder path to lock gates of Royal Docks, sit on mooring bollard and watch ships come and go, no elfin safety then! Still have my treasured Observer Book of Ships.
