Alfred Gelder Street, Hull
The eastern end of Alfred Gelder Street, looking east towards Drypool Bridge LinkExternal link and Clarence Flour Mills. LinkExternal link The street was named after Alfred Gelder (1854-1941), city architect who later became Mayor of Hull. Gelder was involved in the transformation of Queen's Dock into Queen's Gardens and designed a number of Methodist Chapels as well as a revolutionary roller flour mill used by his friend and fellow methodist Joseph Rank. Gelder and Rank both lived in houses designed by Gelder at 365-371 Holderness Road. LinkExternal link On the left is the shot tower of Gamebore Cartridge Company Ltd, a former grain silo converted for the production of lead shot. It is one of only about three remaining in the UK and possibly the only one still in use. Molten lead is poured through a copper sieve at the top of the shot tower and the fast-cooling droplets form tiny balls on the way down, which are collected in a water-filled basin at the bottom.
