Grimsby (Part 2 of 2).

More pictures from Grimsby.

Lockhill roundabout at the end of the A180 comimg into Grimsby.  In the distance can
be seen another iconic building, The Grimsby Dock Offices and clock.

A closer view of the Dock Offices & Clock.

Looking across the Royal Dock toward the Dock Tower.

One of the ferries that bring new cars into the UK through
the port of Grimsby.

Cars as far as the eye can see!

Grimsby Telephone Exchange.
Busses parked at the Stagecoach depot in Victoria Street, a relative new building.(See next image)
This is the old, original bus depot, formerly the depot for the Grimsby Trams.


Back into Freeman Street.

I have one or two little hideaways where I can park a car just off Freeman Street and at the rear
of a premise there is this beautiful glazed tile murel depicting the Grimsby fishing industry.
It is quite large and covers most of the back wall.
(See also the next image).

On the opposite wall is this tiled image of the Dock Tower set
against a map of all the fishing grounds the trawlers used to go to.

In Freeman Street there are many shops now showing how multinational Grimsby has become.

A couple more of the shops that attracted me.

My favourite shop at this end of Freeman Street!
