Hull was at one point the largest deep sea fishing port in the world, with entire communities based around the docks, and the vast majority of work in the city was in some way connected to the trawlers and their cargo. When this all came to an end it left Hull without an industry. What followed was mass unemployment, and since the trawler’s crews were classed as casual labour, none of the men received redundancy, adding to the hardship. Hull has shown a moderate recovery but the remnants of the buildings and docks remain, and with no funding or maintenance, stand as a sad reminder to many of what has been lost.
