Milldane, Orchard Park
Milldane, Orchard Park
Looking north towards the block of flats at 185 to 427 Milldane from Hall Road near the northwest corner of Ribycourt. In recent years the formerly densely populated housing estate of Orchard Park has been thinned out a bit and some of the housing blocks replaced with patches of grass, a few of which have picnic tables and ornamental trees and shrubs.

In the foreground is one of Hull's iconic cream coloured K6 telephone kiosks. Hull's telephone company, now Kingston Communications, never joined the national telecommunications industry and as a result installed cream telephone boxes when the rest of the country had red ones. Perhaps as a result of this statement of individuality, Hull still had a reported 239 of the K series telephone kiosks operating in 2006.
