Re: Anyone from East Yorkshire?

There is a lovely Maritime Museum in Hull - now the richer for two oil paintings left to them by one of my Uncles (by marriage) - one of which is a sailing ship and the other a portrait of the ship's Master. My uncle was born in Hornsea but had many family connections with Hull and the sea.

The ship in the painting was involved in a dramatic rescue at Daedalus Lighthouse in the Red Sea - and we had a copy of the Master's handwritten report to the ship owners of the event. The Museum were thrilled to receive them.

It is quite an exciting story!

Re: Anyone from East Yorkshire?

What a City! We do our best to keep it all quiet: let those who know nowt carry on thinking as they do. I'm a bit sorry about the City of Culture thingy, as I think we'll be overwhelmed with outsiders, even possibly some Lancastrians! And I'll bet the come back once they've been here. I'm petitioning for a wall across the Pennines and the Humber Bridge, where passports must be shown. The Mexicans won't have to pay for them.

Re: Anyone from East Yorkshire?

I have only just seen this post.

I was born in Hull and lived there happily for 38 years until I married and moved away. I still have friends in the City who I meet up with regularly, sadly not in Hull we meet up somewhere between the two of us, I now live in the Midlands.

My friends speak with pride about the City of Culture next year and I am sure they will send me photos throughout the year. They have shown me a few places that we used to go to on our nights out which have now sadly been knocked down. But what great times we used to have.

Re: Anyone from East Yorkshire?

Well by 'eck. You've got me on that one, so will have to take it up with other lads and lasses more senior than me. Anyway, at least you're not having Yorkshire Puds with turkey! Can you believe the philistines all over the country who'll be sitting down on Christmas Day with Yorkshire Puds on a plate where they should not be. It's making me ill just thinking of it!

I am sure Floydy, who started this thread, will let me in. After all, better half Yorkshire than no Yorkshire at all.

Re: Anyone from East Yorkshire?

Emmm all from East Yorkshire are Makems.

Deira (Old English: Derenrice or Dere) was a kingdom (559–664 AD)[1] in Northern England that probably emerged when Anglian warriors conquered the Derwent Valley in the third quarter of the fifth century.[2] It extended from the Humber to the Tees, and from the sea to the western edge of the Vale of York.

Re: Anyone from East Yorkshire?

Well now hinny, thou needs a bit of a geographical lesson like.
It comes from when miners, Geordies (Newcastle) called Sunderland makems. It's also to do with football and the rivalry, but the name "Mackem" came from the mining days and is an insulting word towards people of Sunderland.
See, it takes a Tyke to sort you all out. BUT ... I do like a bit of pease pudd'n.

Re: Anyone from East Yorkshire?

Was brought up in Withernsea back when they had:-

A great Railway system up up Hull & Back. (until some idiot killed it off)

The Grand Pavilion, which had huge attraction as big dance bands came & went (the somebody killed that off)
The Italian Gardens & Bowling Greens - long gone?
No need for massive stones on the beach as erosion was much less prevalent.

Large numbers of holiday Makers providing much needed business for all the inns & even the kids who wheel-barrowed visitors to the Camp Sites.

What Happened?

Re: Anyone from East Yorkshire?

And I was just remembering our 6 weeks school holidays spent on Ken Moon's field, where my auntie had a converted railway carriage. Brilliant.
