The School for Fishermen, Hull
The School for Fishermen, Hull, taken 8 years ago
The Hull School for Fishermen on the west side of Boulevard. Different sources suggest it was built in 1914 but possibly didn't open until 1921, perhaps due to the upheaval caused by the First World War. By the mid 1920s it was renamed the Boulevard Nautical School to include boys interested in joining the merchant navy, and later became known as Hull Nautical College. It replaced the earlier Hull Municipal Technical School for Fishermen at No.1 Harrow Street and its remit was to give young men an all-round education as well as the skills required for a life at sea. Hull Nautical College moved to new premises on George Street in 1973 and the building is now Hull Youth Service's Boulevard Resource Centre.
