Smokehouse chimneys at a disused fish factory off the southern end of Essex Street in Gipsyville, West Hull. At the height of the fishing industry there were dozens of these smokehouses scattered across the Hessle Road area of Hull but many have been demolished and most of those that remain are no longer obvious because their distinctive chimneys have been taken down. When in use, the prepared fish was smoked by hanging it on wooden racks in the tall narrow building and lighting sawdust fires in a cellar underneath. The cowls on top of the chimney pots are designed to turn with the wind.
