Ex-Boots (Hull)

Ex-Boots, Hull, East Yorkshire, 2005 Positively my final Boots for now, once again proving the brilliant recognisability of its longstanding logo (designed by Jesse Boot in 1883) – even when it’s gone. This shows the UK’s 2017 City of Culture in a more downbeat era; but Hull is actually a fascinating place full of superb commercial premises, as I shall prove over the next couple of weeks.
