W. & J. Oliver. (Stead & Smith Engineering)

W. & J. Oliver. (Stead & Smith Engineering), 153 Wincolmlee, Kingston upon Hull, 2013 Nice to see an old engineering building that still houses engineers – and sells macho things like rigger boots. Wincolmlee is a very long, hard-to-spell road running alongside the River Hull. It’s semi-industrial, semi-derelict, and all interesting: more of it tomorrow.
