Paragon Arcade

Paragon Arcade, Paragon Street, Hull, 2013 (top) and 2005 Cute 1891 Gothic Revival arcade by Alfred Gelder. On the lower right of the very blurry 2005 shot you can see Segal’s Jewellers, est. 1919; sadly owner Maurice Segal (son of the founder) passed away in 2011, aged 87. The shop’s still there though, unlike The Bewlay’s Pipe Pub on the other side.
