365-371 Holderness Road, Hull
A block of Victorian town houses designed by city architect Alfred Gelder (1854-1941), who later became Mayor of Hull. Alfred Gelder was presumably pleased with the resulting buildings as he is said to have lived at No.365 (left of picture) from 1888 to 1903. The house is now the offices of the rather wonderfully named Annison & Boddy Funeral Directors. 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 for customers such as Joseph Rank.

Joseph Rank (1854-1943), fellow Methodist and founder of the milling firm of Joseph Rank Ltd., lived at No.371 (right of picture). His grandfather's old windmill still stands a little further along Holderness Road. LinkExternal link Joseph's son Joseph Arthur was born here in December 1888 but was to become famous for something other than the family business he inherited, although it continues to this day as Rank Hovis McDougall (RHM). Joseph Arthur began showing religious films as a Methodist minister in his middle age, an occupation which eventually led to him become a world-renowned film producer and distributor and founder of the Rank Organisation which is now known as The Rank Group Plc.
